Nature- Environment,
Science
Join Animal Embassy for a night-time voyage through the rainforest. After the sun sets in the rainforest, a new cast of characters arrives. Many animals try to lay low while night-time predators are on the hunt, and a symphony of sounds abounds in the rainforest! The jaguar roars; the owl hoots, the boa constrictor slithers through the trees in search or prey, the tarantula strengthens its web to ensnare many of the insects of the night, the tortoise burrows underground to escape the prowling jaguar, the sugar glider hunts for flies and other small creatures, the walking stick cleverly mimics the branch or plant it sits upon to avoid detection. Animal Embassy will bring the night-time story of the rainforest to life with living examples of its many jungle characters! Meet a Red-foot tortoise, a Pink-toed tarantula, a Boa constrictor, a Sugar glider, and more!

Seeman, Laurie From Waterdrop to Watershed Nature- Environment,
Science,
Visual Arts- Other
Strawtown invites participants to learn fascinating and important new things about water and water habitats through hands-on Art and Science workshops. We begin with a discussion about the many ways we use, appreciate and interact with water. We take a close look at one drop of water, and how it travels in a larger vase of water. Participants make observations about what they see. We look at how one tinted drop of water falls into a vortex of water, and participants relate this to other experiences they have with water. Participants make ink drop paintings using the same scientific materials with which we just worked. They experiment with the way the ink drop moves around on the wet and/or dry paper. With watercolor pencils they personalize their paintings. With volunteers we demonstrate what a watershed is. With different earth materials, we look at how raindrops fall onto a “mountain”, and create a watershed with tributaries, ponds, lakes, and oceans. Participants learn to see the connection between the water cycle and human activity with regard for woodlands, wetland habitats, grasslands, soil, and geology, and animal bio-diversity.

We’ll explore how a variety of animals keep us healthy by eating disease-carrying insects. Learn how some tortoises dig burrows that provide homes for hundreds of other species during at least one stage of their lifecycle. Discover how some animals dig trenches for their offspring, while others adopt orphaned babies. We’ll also discuss how animals help to plant forests as well as fruit trees!
