Science through Nature: Dendrology (Previously Homeschool Science)
October 5, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm$10 – $15
Science through Nature (previously Homeschool Science) is an educational program for students who want to explore the sciences through nature-based, hands-on activities.
What does it mean to be a scientist? Each month, students will discover how to be just like a scientist by learning about the natural world! This exciting program is designed to supplement remote learning or home school education through observation, exploration, and investigation, partnered with fun, interactive hands-on activities and a naturalist-guided hike!
This year, students will learn about the “Ologies” or “the study of.” Each session will focus on a different “Ology” and how it can be applied to the diverse ecosystem of plant and animal life within the Forest.
The “Ologies” Series – October 5: dendrology
What’s alive in the forest, but doesn’t move? Trees! In this session, we’ll learn all about trees and why they are so important to the environment. We’ll spend time outside, learning how to identify trees.
Recommended for students 2nd through 4th grade. Maximum of 15 students per session. Pre-registration required.
This program is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Pricing is per student, per session. Members must sign in to receive discount.
