For students who have not attended a Habitat Explorers field trip, learn about the ins and outs of habitats with home-based activities.
Streams are home to a wide array of living things all functioning as part of an intricate system. Regardless of what stream you look in – from a pristine mountain stream to a little creek in a city, you can find similar organisms living there.
Students experience the outdoors throughout the seasons to learn about urban ecology and the benefits provided by parks and other green infrastructure in cities.
Your Parks Matter
Parks thrive when they have sun, soil, rain…and you. You ensure programs are offered, trees are planted, capital projects are funded, flowers are tended to, research is pursued. There is nothing the parks can’t do with you behind them.
WE ARE ALL IN. ARE YOU?
Parks do not exist without people. We restore parks for your joy and well-being. Pittsburghers need spaces where fathers can play catch with their sons, couples reconnect, family’s picnic. Parks, in return, do more than we realize. They clean the air, filter stormwater, lower stress…provide a natural sanctuary in forests of steel and glass surrounded by rivers of asphalt. Like anything alive, if neglected a park will suffer. And ultimately perish.
We believe in the power of parks. We are all in. Are you?
