April Vacation ONLINE: Backyard Safari 4-8
April 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - April 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm$60
Your favorite vacation programs from the Talcott Mountain Science Center are now ONLINE!
You don’t need to travel to tropical locations to find amazing creatures!
In Backyard Safari: Exploring your Local World, students in grades 4-8 can join ecologist Dr. Zacharczenko on a virtual journey through the ecosystems of Connecticut, while you follow along in your own backyard or park. We will learn to find and identify native plants and animals, how to keep and observe them, and even perform a mini BioBlitz! Other activities will include nature-inspired arts and crafts, how to help pollinators, and marine science labs focused on Long Island Sound.
Course meets ONLINE for 3 days each, April 13, 15 and 17, (Mon, Wed and Fri) from 9 AM-Noon and 1 – 4 PM each day. Class is $60 per student.
Each day will have 2 activities, one AM and one PM. Each activity has a web guide, a teacher kick-off video, a hands-on activity and ZOOM show-and-tell get-together!
