The Education Centre has capacity for more than 100 seated individuals, and our events are managed with eco-friendly aspects of catering and waste management. During the wetter season (October – March) we like to combine all events with some tree-planting activities and welcome participants to bring native seedlings to Tasikoki. Use of the venue is free to non-commercial entities based in North Sulawesi, we only ask for the right to present some brief info on nature conservation and for at least two tree seedlings to plant in our arboretum area.
On most Saturday evenings, we invite local community residents to the Education Centre to see free screenings of nature documentaries and seek support to help expand our video library with educational material in Indonesian or with Indonesian subtitles.
