Ecosystem Investigations*

“How do organisms interact across multiple ecosystems?”
Students will participate in an investigation hike that will have them exploring three different ecosystems. They will explore predator prey relationships in the forest through an interactive game. In the meadow, students will take part in a population mapping game that simulates conflicting land needs by stakeholders. In the wetland, students will learn about the functions of wetlands as well as explore the macroinvertebrates in Genesee Creek.
