Lake Katherine
In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.

    Homeschool Days

 

Home school days allow individual home school students to attend preselected programs. Only students of the grade-equivalent age for the programs offered will be registered.


Wetland Worders
Thursday, May 16, 2019
Time: 1:00-2:30
Grades K-5
Program # 687
Cost: $6
Using dip nets and dishes, each student will retrieve insect larvae from the water’s edge of the lake and wetland habitat, and place into petri dishes. Students will categorize the specimens they find using magnifiers and a dissecting scope. Specimens will be grouped into pollution tolerance levels as well as what type of consumer they are.

Registration deadline is May 9, 2019
