Family Field Trip: Acquatic Adaptations 9:30 am

This event is no longer on sale.

Monday May 3

9:30 AM  –  12:00 PM

Preregistration is required.  Suitable for 1st-5th grade equivalent, but older and younger siblings may attend as well. 

Participants should meet in the PlayScape Pavilion at our Rowe Woods location. 

What makes some animals better adapted to pond life when others can make the stream a perfect home? Trekking with a naturalist to the stream and pond to compare is one way to find out! From big bullfrogs to tiny insects, we will explore the specialized mouths, breathing methods, shapes, and colors that help them each survive in their preferred habitat.  

Members $7; nonmembers $11 (includes daily admission).  
What to wear/bring: Please dress for the weather as this program will take place outside. Bring a water bottle and a mask. Cincinnati Nature Center is following the guidance of the CDC which continues to require masks for all adults and children in kindergarten through 12th grade for indoors (for example, Rowe Visitor Center, restroom, etc) and outdoors when one cannot consistently maintain a six-foot distance. All individuals kindergarten and up are included regardless of vaccination status.
Designated overseer: If a parent/caregiver is unable to attend an event, the child may attend a program with an adult designated to oversee the experience of the child (for example: grandparent, another homeschool parent, etc.). We request that one adult oversee no more than six children.
