One program can seat up to 99 people; larger groups will be split into two programs.

Happenin’ Habitats
(Grades K–5)

Where does a red-tailed hawk call home? How about a gopher tortoise? Not only will students find out what types of habitats local wildlife species are found in, but why they live there. An animal’s relationship to its habitat is very important because it must provide them with everything it needs to survive. Meet some live animals and find out what habitats they call home.
