Homeschool Thursday: Prolific Ponds
Sep 20 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Grades K-2: 10:00 – 11:30 – The ponds are full of life! We’ll venture to the Wilderness Pond and see what critters live in there, and then learn about some of them back in the lab.

Grades 3-6: 12:00 – 1:30 – The types of macroinvertebrates we see in a pond can tell us about water quality. In this class, we’ll collect specimens at the pond, identify and count them, and come up with a water quality score for the pond at The Wilderness Center.

Cost: Free for members, $4.00 per child for non-members. Adults are free. Registration not required, but preferred.
