Environmental Prairie Science
For grades 5th through 7th, this 90-minute curriculum-based program explores the principles of science and their application in a prairie environment on the Southwind Nature Trail, just north of the historic ranch buildings. Students conduct a miniature scientific experiment and learn about prairie ecosystems through games and activities. A full preview of the curriculum guide can be viewed here.
