Eco-Discovery Camp

Ecosystem Explorations, Aug 20-24 for AGES 5-7

Aug 20-24@ 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

*Optional evening program on Friday (camp day extended until 8:30pm, includes campfire dinner and night hike)

This week we’ll explore each of Great Hollow’s four major ecosystems—forests, meadows, wetlands, and streams—in depth to discover the variety of plants and animals that make them home. We’ll learn what all living things (including us!) need to survive and the diverse methods different species use to meet these needs. The week will be capped off by an optional night hike so we can observe the changes that occur in each ecosystem as the sun goes down, and maybe see or hear some nocturnal critters that are just starting their day.

Topics covered: ecosystems; biotic vs abiotic; predator/prey relationships; what living things need to survive; producers and consumers; herbivores, omnivores, carnivores, and decomposers; food webs; habitats; species niches; competition; symbiotic relationships; adaptations; lifecycles; invasive species; direct vs indirect observations.
