Program Description & Details

A wondrous world exists below the chilly waters of Lynn Creek. What’s living there? Most of the creatures in the creek are much smaller than salmon and trout. Invertebrates form the basis of the aquatic food chain. During this program, you’ll discover how aquatic invertebrates have adapted to, depend on, and survive in their environment. Students will identify aquatic invertebrates and use simple chemical tests to measure water quality in Lynn Creek.

Program Description & Details

The coastal temperate rainforest is a rare and diverse ecosystem. Get out, go for a walk to two different rainforest sites, and explore the biodiversity of this ecosystem firsthand! This program allows students to become familiar with native trees and plants by measuring their diversity along transects in the forest. Students will help design a hypothesis for the study, collect field data, and then participate in a brief analysis of what they have found. They’ll experience a glimpse into the practical side of field biology that will help them understand the complex relationships that exist in forest habitats and the science of measuring them. This program works well for classes studying plant biology, geography, or temperate rainforest ecology.
