Sign up for one of these lab experiences and guided tour. Happy Habitats: Kindergarten-2nd grade Native Plants: 3-5th grade:

Happy Habitats (k-2 grade) –In the animal adaptions section, students are challenged to find out which bird beaks work best with different bird foods. They will do a bird puppet craft and have an opportunity to explore insect homes and life cycles. In the second part, the focus is on food webs. They will also tour parts of the Garden with a focus on bird habitats. 

Native Plants in Our Lives (3-5th Grade): The group is challenged to find a suitable site for a community dependent on local resources. They learn to identify 8 native plants well known to local Native Americans and learn about the plants’ uses in supporting daily needs and technology then and now. Students apply this new knowledge to a challenge in which they work together as a group to earn “survival” points and select a suitable site in the Garden where a community could thrive. They participate in a cooperative STEM problem solving activity.
