Amazing Animal Adaptations
From small invertebrates to large mammals, explore how these animals survive in their environment with amazing adaptations! Scales, wings, teeth and more will be investigated through hands-on activities like macroinvertebrate collection, skull observations, and fish dissection.
Don’t let the name fool you, a watershed is not a shed full of water! Watersheds are an important part of the landscape that help keep our waterways clean and healthy. Get up close to the Yellowstone River Watershed through gravel bar exploration, water quality testing, and experiment with your own watershed design.
Birds, insects, and bats all call the skies home. Learn about the flying creatures of our world, study the science of flight, and engineer your own flying creations. Take off and come fly into a world of learning and outdoor discovery!
What’s up? The Sky!
Delve into the “Big Sky” of Montana and learn about the clouds, the Sun, the planets, and more. Review the water cycle, make clouds, and create your own constellation. The sky’s the limit!
Forest and Fire Ecology
Forests and fire are one of nature’s original ‘frenemies’. Study the ecology of both by discovering the plants and animals of the forest, as well as the behavior and properties of fire. Ignite your knowledge and test your fire skills!
