Calling all homeschool students and their families! Are you looking for new, exciting, hands-on programs that facilitate learning for the entire family? Heller Nature Center is the resource for you! Adult must accompany children. Fee is per person. Each person attending the program needs to be registered. With nets in hand we will capture micro- and macro- invertebrates: everything from dragonfly nymphs to bullfrog tadpoles. Students will then use microscopes to look at the variety of creatures and determine the health of the water using a biotic index. This program is entirely outdoors, so please dress for the weather and wear shoes that can get muddy. Children must be accompanied by an a participating adult. Online registration ends May 20.
