Variation and Survival Field Trip
Use nature journaling to better understand inherited and environmental traits of live organisms. Compare the traits of animals and plants that you find and create a class field guide to reinforce learning.
Variation and Survival 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.
