Energy Flow Field Trip
Have fun on the trails finding signs of photosynthesis, decomposition, and predation. Search for animals and plants on the field trip and identify their role in a food web. Become ecological detectives by investigating a fallen tree to determine the role decomposers play in energy flow.
Energy Flow 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.
This field trip is available at all of our Metro South Sanctuaries which include the Blue Hills Trailside Museum, the Museum of American Bird Art, Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, and Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary.
