Freshwater Pond Life

A classroom visit introduces students to freshwater pond ecology and prepares classes for field trips to Felix Neck and Cranberry Acres, where we collect samples of aquatic invertebrates and amphibians with nets. Students learn to identify, count and record their findings, and discuss the intricate life cycles, food webs, and survival adaptations of pond organisms.
