Adaptation Stations

Students learn about the AWCC’s wildlife from this interactive, bio-fact based drop-in program. This option is ideal for groups to interact with on a rolling basis during their visit and for larger groups.

Grades: K-12 (booked in hour increments)

Adaptation Station options:

  1. Tracks and Scat: Become familiar with animal tracks and signs. Learn how to recognize what wildlife has passed through your area.
  2. Skull Morphology: Learn to identify different animal skulls based on their features. Test your knowledge with a matching game.
