Local Food Webs Field Trip

Add the animals and plants you find to your food web. Investigate a fallen log to learn about decomposers, and discover how energy moves through trophic levels with a food web game.

Local Food Webs is a part of a two-part program series with 1x in-class program and 1x field trip program. You may choose to book only the in-class or field trip program, but we recommend booking both for deeper engagement.
