The Forest Ecosystem
All programs last two hours unless noted otherwise in the program description below.
To request this in-person field trip, please contact Helen Ann Sephton.
The forest is a dynamic ecosystem and is also an ideal classroom. Through a variety of activities, students will learn about plant life cycles, and the energy transfer through the food web from producers to consumers to decomposers. Seasonal changes allow for variations in themes (e.g. foliage, buds, photosynthesis).
