Backyard Naturalists: Advanced

north american porcupine

Backyard Naturalists is the second of five series in the 2017-2018 Zoo Homeschool curriculum exploring global biomes. Each series is a detailed exploration of a different major global biome, the ecosystems that define it and the animals that make it their home. Students may register for individual series or for the entire curriculum. Register for all five 2017-2018 homeschool series by September 21 for a 10 percent discount.

Backyard Naturalists: There really is no place like home, and autumn is a wild time in the deciduous forests that surround our region! We will learn about the practices and strategies that Master Naturalists use to explore our local ecosystem and build our own backyard naturalist kits. Together, we will dig deep into our backyard biome and meet the many animal residents that share our home. Class will meet once a week for five weeks.

Backyard Naturalist: Advanced is a drop-off only program. Advanced courses cover the same themes and concepts as Primary courses, but include more detail, longer discussions and higher-level experiments and activities.

There will be no class the week of Thanksgiving.
