The special program for this year’s Soil Protection Month features environmental education challenges and hands-on experience of traceless, low impact camping made possible through Guizikeng’s rich natural resources and camping ground.

Chief Lin of the agency’s Forest Recreation Section pointed out that the activity promotes soil conservation concepts and introduces participants to the unique soil and mineral features and water resources of the area through games and challenges, teaching them on how to appreciate the great outdoor without damaging the environment.

The event is completely free of charge! Online registration will be open to the public starting noon on May 15. A total of 27 camping positions and 200 game participant slots will be available. If the number of applicants exceeds this total, there will be raffles to determine the finalists.
