All Creatures Great and Small

Available June 11 to June 28

Ecosystems exist due to a delicate balance of the animals and plants within them. What happens if that balance is disturbed? How do animals and plants adapt to human encroachment or the introduction of another species? Students can explore the natural world through interactions with our live animal habitats, hands-on activities and a discussion on the ways humans can help maintain our diverse ecosystems.
