Students will explore several habitats such as forests, meadows, wetlands, vernal pool, stream, or edge habitat, and compare the plant and animal communities found in each.
Use scientific tools to observe and study living organisms in their natural habitat as you discover the connections between plants and animals, and learn how changes to a habitat can impact the species that live there
Locations: Any Central wildlife sanctuary, your schoolyard, or a suitable community greenspace.
