Thursday, April 2, 10:00 – 10:45 am
In this distance-learning program, we will follow the journey of water as it repeatedly cycles throughout our planet and sustains all of Earth’s inhabitants. We will conduct basic water experiments, take a look at aquatic organisms, and discuss the importance of clean water in our communities. We will also use real-time online databases from regional watersheds to understand just how water moves through our local ecosystems. This program is most suitable for children ages 6 to 10. Some basic household materials, such as ice cubes, will be required along with a computer or tablet with a camera, microphone, and internet connection. Please email our education coordinator Maggie for more information and to register. Free for members and non-members.
