December 19, 2015

December 2015 “Biodiversity”, by Dr. Sandy Raimondo of the Environmental Protection Agency in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Students learned the importance of diverse plant and animal life for a healthy planet. They learned the biological differences between plants and animals, vertebrates and invertebrates, etc. They observed key characteristics of specimen from various groups, and classified their specimen based on observations and what they had learned. Nearby Blackwater River State Park provided free one-day park passes to the families of all who attended, so that they could visit and observe our local biodiversity. This Science Saturday was sponsored by the Kugelman Foundation.
