Habitat Exploration PK-2

Students will explore woodland, wetland, meadow, and edge areas to discover how animals find food, water, shelter, and space in those habitats. Through the clues animals leave behind, we can also uncover the interrelationships between species and the diversity of species within and across habitats.

Also available and recommended: schedule a classroom visit before your field trip. A naturalist will introduce your students to the concept of habitat and guide them in building an ideal habitat for a favorite species.
