Each field trip is two hours in length. Consider extending the trip by packing a picnic lunch and staying after the program ends! Adults without children are welcome too!! Life in a Stream (all ages) Wednesdays, 10am–12noon on July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, Thursday, 10am–12noon on Aug. 6, 13 Streams are an excellent place for the science of discovery and investigation. The critters who make their home in the stream demonstrate a beautiful web of life, from algae and microscopic organisms, to insect larvae and amphibians. We'll begin at the Hitchcock Center and use our limnology lab tools to practice techniques for observing small aquatic creatures and learning about their unique life cycles and adaptations. We'll then head to the stream at Groff park, where we will collect and observe several varieties of invertebrates that depend on this habitat.
