Tree Frog Treks is a hands on science enrichment program for students in K-5th grade that engages kids through science experiments, art projects, games and interactions with our live animal ambassadors (reptiles, amphibians and insects). Fall 2016 Course Description: Wild Animal Explorer! Join Tree Frog Treks for our Wild Animal Explorer program! We will learn about the five classes of vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals) by meeting live animals, studying skins, skulls, and specimens, and exploring the natural world. Hold frogs and do the frog walk! Find out about the secret lives of your own pets! Touch a Red-tailed hawk wing and talons, learn bird calls, and use binoculars and a spotting scope to see our feathered friends up close. Find out which bears used to live in San Francisco, and how they can sleep all winter without eating. Develop your powers of observation, make fun take-home art projects, and come face-to-face with frogs, salamanders, lizards, snakes and our whole cast of creepy, crawly co-workers! There will be no class on 9/5, 10/10, 10/31, or the week of Parent Teacher Conferences (date TBD).
