Home School Workshops: Winter 2017 Schedule

January 18th: The Arctic

  • 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for 3rd through 5th graders
  • 1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. for 6th through 8th graders

Join us as we travel from our Wisconsin winter environment to the vulnerable arctic ecosystem. We’ll examine the polar bear as an umbrella species to discuss topics related to glacial melting, habitat loss, predator/prey relationships, and endangered species.

February 8th: The Rainforest

  • 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for 3rd through 5th graders
  • 1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. for 6th through 8th graders

Rainforests may be thousands of miles away, but they impact our lives in Wisconsin in many ways. We’ll discover the many important ecosystem services that rainforests provide to us, using the orangutan as a focus species.

March 15th: Wetlands

  • 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for 3rd through 5th graders
  • 1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. for 6th through 8th graders

Wetlands are diverse ecosystems that provide homes for a myriad of species – along with providing important services to humans.  Amphibians, such as salamanders and frogs, will be our focus species to help us examine topics related to pollution, bio-indicators, the water cycle, and food chains. 

Additional workshops will be available starting in Fall 2017!

Registration is closed.
