For Schools: Bass in the Class
Sep 06 - Nov 18
From Sep 06, 2016 to Nov 18, 2016
This activity is closed to further registration.
Liven up your science curriculum with this eight-week hands-on aquatic biology program that's wildly popular with teachers and students. Thrill students with first-hand experiences of life cycles, food chains, ecosystems and animal behavior.
After attending a mandatory two-hour training program in the spring, you'll receive up to six young bass in early fall to raise in the classroom and release in November. Naturalists will guide you through the details of this exciting program and give you the information you'll need to succeed.
Registration for the fall 2016 program has ended. For information on fall 2017 (and the mandatory training in spring 2017) call (630) 850-8112.
