Afterschool at Joppa: Subtidal Scientists

Kids ages 6-8 will investigate the subtidal zone with Joppa Flats Naturalists!

This week's program will focus on the habitat of the subtidal zone, a world that is usually covered with water except for the very lowest part of low tide! Our afternoon starts off with self-guided activities, challenges, or puzzles that lead us to our topic for the day. As a group, we'll observe, investigate, and compare wildlife, their adaptations, and the changes that they undergo in autumn. Participants may play the role of entomologist, ornithologist, astronomer, or even glaciologist throughout this series. Each experience will leave your young naturalist eager for the next session.
