|Homeschool Series - Desert Ecology
Jan 31, 2013
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Hot days and cold nights make surviving in the desert a difficult task. Participants will learn how succulents have evolved not only to survive, but flourish in this harsh habitat. Learning about desert flora and fauna is a great way to learn about plant and animal defenses. Children will learn about how each desert in our world has its own special characteristics.
The winter homeschool series will be a six week series that will meet on Thursdays in January, February and March from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm. Ages 5-11 are welcome to attend. Parents can stay for the program or drop off their children for the hour. Each class will consist of indoor and outdoor time; parents should plan for their children to spend some time outside in winter weather and should dress appropriately.
