What secrets lie beneath the surface of the streams and ponds in our area? What animal left those unusual tracks along the water’s edge? What kind of nest is that between the branches above? What is the name of that insect that buried its larvae beneath the mud? Are all things in a pond or stream ecosystem somehow connected? We will answer these questions and many more as we explore water systems in the Boulder area. We will look at the smallest animals under a microscope and catch larger ones with a net. We'll make a diorama of an animal in its habitat, and create cattails to learn about the importance of this plant in our local marshes. Join us for this watery outdoor adventure!
