Nature Program Group Studies

Studies last roughly an hour*

Our Pennsylvania Woodlands
The woodland study includes learning about Pennsylvania’s plant and animal life and how they work in concert with one another to create a healthy environment and why it is necessary to protect it.  Participants will learn about bugs, trees, mammals, birds and their habitats, to identify edible vs. harmful plants within those habitats, and discover why many of these creatures are threatened, endangered, or extinct.

Reptiles & Amphibians
This study teaches the differences between reptiles and amphibians, the important role they play in the environment, and the great diversity of these colorful, fascinating, and often times misunderstood creatures.

Pond & Stream Life
Here students will be exploring our freshwater ecosystems. They will learn about the animals that live in these habitats and will have the opportunity to collect small samples from our pond for an up close look at the aquatic invertebrates, frogs, and other life found there. Guidance will be given regarding conservation of the ecosystems, proper handling, and “catch and release” techniques.
