Terrestrial Invertebrates – Thursday, October 10
Bugs have a terrible reputation, but insects and spiders are important to the
ecosystem. We investigate a decomposing log to see how many kinds of invertebrates
we can find, what part of the log they like to live in, and what makes them incredible.
NATURE SCIENCE LABS
Students explore the world around them as they investigate the biology and ecology of plants and animals, and the environment they inhabit. We study what mosses and lichens really are, look at the microhabitats of different bugs, dissect an owl pellet to see what they eat, use microscopes to see the tiny critters that live in a pond, and more! All lab costs are included in registration fee. Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
