Geosite Evaluation to Support Learning and Conservation


Freedom of learning can introduce more contextual factors, including environmental factors, into Indonesia’s education system. Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park has a natural uniqueness that can support the contextual learning process. Education held in the park can provide concrete conservation understanding for park visitors. Educational support facilities can provide information to understand the condition of the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park area, but these facilities are still not fully developed. The conservation effort requires more information, including evaluation of the geosite as geological wealth. Geosite evaluation occurs by describing the uniqueness of the geological, ecological and cultural landscapes so that educational information can be produced for the sake of conservation of the region. An appreciation of the existing geodynamic processes can offer park visitors a valuable learning experience during their tour activities. This research aimed to determine the kind of evaluation of geosites that can be developed in volcanic tourism activities. Qualitative approaches were used to provide a description of geosite evaluation. The research was conducted on the tourist route of Mount Penanjakan – Sand Sea – Mount Bromo.
