Description

This field trip investigates the diversity of plants within Olympic National Park as well as the basics of plant reproduction. Through guided and unguided observations, students will increase their understanding of the plants of the Pacific Northwest, understand how scientists use a variety of tools and equipment to assist with the scientific process, as well as realize that the scientific method begins with observations and questioning.

The two-hour long hands-on program compliments the New Plants FOSS Science Kits. It includes a ranger guided plant walk on the Living Forest Trail, a session with our dissecting microscope, and educational games and activities. This program is typically offered in autumn.
