Habitat Explorations

Discover the amazing habitats, plants and wildlife found around your school or in your community. Search for the sources of food, water, shelter, and space that plants and animals need in order to successfully live there.

On a visit to a wildlife sanctuary, investigate field, forest, and wetland habitats to search for the sources of food, water, shelter, and space that plants and animals need in order to successfully live there. Observe similarities and differences in body parts, structures, behaviors, and functions as you learn what it means for wildlife to be adapted to their home.

Choose either a single school-based program or field trip, or combine the two into a series.
