The meadow is a wide open area with lots of tall plants. It is a very sunny place due to the lack of shady trees and many of the plants and animals have adapted to be able to withstand the sun. Many insects and spiders call the meadow home!
The woodland is a habitat with lots of tall trees. Many insects and invertebrates can be found in and under fallen logs on the woodland floor, while mammals and birds actively go about their day!
The stream is a running water habitat. Streams play a vital role in providing water for the organisms in the park. Careful exploration of the stream can result in finding many living organisms under rocks and along the stream bank.
Discover activities that will help young learners think about and explore their own habitat – the place where they get everything they need! The activities are designed for you, their best teacher, to participate with them.
