Students will explore several habitats such as forest, meadow, wetland, vernal pool, stream, or edge habitat, and compare the plant and animal communities found in each. Discover the connections between plants and animals, why certain species prefer specific habitats, and how changes to a habitat can impact the species that live there.
Locations: Any Central wildlife sanctuary, your schoolyard, or a suitable community greenspace.
