The story of a tiny seed that grows into a forest giant

Be immersed in the inspiring story of a tiny seed that grows into a majestic Marri tree. Discover what it takes to make the flowers and seeds of the Marri tree grow and how the seeds make their way underground where the lifecycle can begin again. A short bushwalk brings the story alive as students collect natural materials to make a bush crown.
