Wanagama Bedrock Forest
Wanagama Laboratory Forest, Playen, Gunung Kidul. Donations appreciated.

The 600-hectare Wanagama Forest is located 36 km south of Jogja in Gunung Kidul regency and is an environmental research and education facility managed by the Forestry Faculty of Universitas Gadjah Mada. Visitors are welcome to stroll through the dense forest, where over 1,500 different plant species - many of them marked with identification tags - were planted in a rocky, barren area by the school's environmental program in 1964. The forest also serves as a model for other reforestation programs.

In April 2007, the Wanagama Bedrock Forest educational center opened with a goal of providing free-of-charge environmental education for all people. Offering programs for kids and adults, participants learn about the elements of various ecosystems and their advantages to humans, as well as how communities can co-exist with nature. The facility also has camping grounds.
