Pond Peering: Hidden beneath the surface of VanDusen’s ponds and streams is a diverse world of beautiful and strange life.

Students will also seek out the plants and animals that make their homes along the pond’s edge.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Investigate various water bodies looking for plants and wildlife
  2. Understand the pond as a layered ecosystem (edges, bottom, water column, surface)
  3. Collect, observe, and identify aquatic invertebrates
  4. Learn that life cycles and survival are features of animal life
