Nature Explorer Family Field Trip: Insect Investigations (all ages)
August 3—10:00 am - 12:00 pm$17 – $28
What makes an animal an insect? What role do insects play in our world and how are they important to people? Students will learn about the science of entomology through a live insect lab, and will collect insects, and their non-insect relatives, in various habitats on our trails. Through these activities, we will learn about the adaptations, life cycles and ecology of one of the most successful groups of animals on earth.
Join one of our talented Hitchcock Center educators and choose among many fun-filled and hands-on field trips designed for the whole family. Each field trip is two hours in length. Consider extending the trip by packing a picnic lunch and staying after the program ends! Adults without children are welcome too!!
