Animal Adaptations Field Trip

How many adaptations can your class find? Compare the adaptations of aquatic wildlife like frogs, fish, dragonflies, and use tracks and traces you find on the trails to learn about physical and behavioral adaptations.

Animal Adaptations 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.
