We hope your visit will deepen your enjoyment of Geography Awareness Week. The theme for the 1996-1997 school year was “Exploring a World of Habitats, Seeing a World of Difference.”

Like any other explorer, you may need some gear. The Fantastic Forest looks best in Netscape Navigator 3.0 (or higher) or Internet Explorer 3.0 (or higher), and sounds best with Netscape Navigator 3.0 (or higher). Shockwave and QuickTime VR will also enhance your visit to the site.

If you have problems with Shockwave, click here for help from Macromedia.

To hear the sounds of the Fantastic Forest and view the panoramas with Netscape Navigator 3.0, make sure you have the QuickTime VR Plug-in. The “easy download” is recommended.
