Kid's Nature Explore: Fun with Food Webs
When looking into a field you may think about the animals that live there, but you might not think about the connections between each species. Are fewer predators always good for the prey species? Food webs help you answer these types of questions. A food web is a way to visualize the interactions within an ecosystem. We will learn about the ecosystem of a meadow or old field through games and activities and then go and see one for ourselves!
Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather, including footwear.
Recommended for ages 9 and up.
