On 20th-23rd of April 2011 LIGULA held an excursion trip for grade XI students of International Class of SMAN 8 Jakarta at Situgunung, Cisaat, Sukabumi. What made situgunung interesting is because it is located within Gunung Halimun Salak National Park and also it has a variety of ecosystem that could be explored. For this occasion, two main ecosystem will be studied; freshwater and forest ecosystem.

In freshwater ecosystem the students learned how to deduce a quality of a certain freshwater bodies using abiotic and biotic measurements.
