Forest Ecosystem and Adaptation

Ecosystems are constantly changing. Discover the keystone species that cause most change to our forests, learn to iden­tify invasive species, observe a field undergoing succession and look for signs of competition among plants. A role-play activity will bring understanding of the environmental is­sues of fragmentation and habitat loss.

Significant savings are offered when you select a second program to create a full-day of hands-on learning at Moose Hill. This program combines well with Adaptations and the Food Web, Weather and Climate, or Watersheds and Wetlands. Because of our large trail system and full-day option, we can serve up to 140 students for many programs. We provide a ratio of one Moose Hill teacher-naturalist to 12 to 14 students.
