Program Description

Deep in Lynn Canyon Park live giant plants that clean the air and water and create food and habitats for animals. What are they? Trees of course! In this program, students will learn about the life cycles of these giant plants, discover how trees grow food and create habitats, and learn about the connections between trees and the soil, air, and water cycles.

Big Ideas
  • Living things have life cycles adapted to their environment.
  • Water is essential to all living things, and it cycles through the environment.
  • Living things are diverse, can be grouped, and interact in their ecosystems.
  • COVID Precautions

    Programs will take place primarily outdoors, with the option to use well ventilated indoor areas for the introduction and conclusion.

    Groups of more than 15 will have two leaders, and the group will be split in half for the duration of the program.

    During the presentation part of the program, the group leader will distance from the group and wear a mask.

    During the field study part of the program, when distancing may not be possible, the group leader will wear a mask.

    Items that we use during the field study will be sanitized.

    Classes that wish to come into the museum after the program will need to pre-book their museum visit. Visits are 30 minutes for a maximum of 15 people at a time. Masks are strongly recommended outside for all students and required inside for ages 5 and up.
