Habitat Detectives

Habitat Detectives

Grades: K-3
Seasons: Fall, Spring


Can you find the five features of an animals habitat? Develop your detective skills as we head out on the trails to discover signs of wildlife and explore the places animals call home. We’ll use microscopes and hand lenses to compare the creatures we find on land to those that live in our river. Using our naturalist senses and artistic creativity we’ll explore plants and animals of our local habitats and those from places far away.
