STEM - NOVA Wild Day
Cubs NOVA Wild Day at Blandford Nature Center
September 14, 2019 - Grand Rapids, MI
What does it take for an animal to survive in the wild?
Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts will engage in an action-packed simulation to explore and understand the complex interactions between herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores in an ecosystem at Blandford Nature Center.
Webelos will learn about vertebrate groups, their unique qualities and habits. Live animals and hands-on props highlight adaptations the different vertebrates use for protection, warmth and food gathering. Both of these groups will run for an hour and a half and the last half an hour of this event will be spent pulling out invasive species along Blandford’s Nature trails!
