Students learn about the water cycle and watersheds through the use of an interactive watershed model.
Suggested time: 1-1.5 hours
Cost: $100 - $125
Inspired by Nature
Let's head out and explore nature to supplement the science activities or other curriculum topics you may be covering at home. Nature can be used to teach many subjects including engineering, history, art, math and more!
Suggested time: 1 - 1.5 hours
Cost: $100 - $125
Vernal Pool Investigations
Participants learn about the importance of these seasonal wetlands for animals such as frogs, salamanders, fairy shrimp, and many insects. We'll use hand nets and guides to discover what's living in the vernal pool we investigate.
Suggested time: 1 hour, available late March through early May only
All About Bugs
We'll have fun catching some six-legged friends while we explore around the River Center or your own backyard with hand nets and other collecting gear. Learn what makes a bug a bug and why they are so important for healthy habitats.
Suggested time: 1 hour
Seining in the Westport River
Join us along the Westport River and use our long seine net and hand nets to catch (and release) the creatures that call the river home. Participants enjoy seeing animals such as fish, crabs and more. If time permits we will also participate in a scavenger hunt for a variety of shells found on the beatch.
Suggested time: 1.5 hours, available mid-June through early October only
