Bio Blitz @ Wachusett Mountain State Reservation Gr 4-5
Come explore the unique ecosystem around the Wachusett Mountain State Reservation! You will work with a wildlife biologist and wetlands scientist to get into the wetlands surrounding the area and do a Bio Blitz-an all-out biology inventory of every little living thing you can find! You will play the role of explorer and scientist as you discover plants, animals, fungi, small organisms and even some rare species! Throughout the day you will also learn about animal habitats, have a chance to explore trails and make an animal nest out of Jell-O. You will earn and receive your Animal Habitats Badge the day of the event. Please dress for the weather; explorers and scientists enjoy the outdoors rain or shine!
