Adaptations of Plants and Animals

Outreach option: Explore your local environment to discover the amazing ways plants and animals use their unique adaptations to thrive-from behaviors to deal with changing seasons to structures for dispersing seeds-and more.

Field trip option: On a field trip to a wildlife sanctuary, explore a combination of field, forest, or wetland habitats to discover the amazing ways plants and animals use their unique adaptations to thrive, such as behaviors to deal with changing seasons, structures to disperse seeds, or body parts to hunt underwater.

This program can focus on animals, plants, or both. Consider adding additional visits to compare different seasons.
