Environmental Volunteers: Baylands Adaptations | SJPL | Online

January 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Things to do for kids, tweens, teens and families at the library.

This program was paid for with the generous support of the Friends of the Willow Glen Branch Library. Environmental Volunteers presents a Baylands Adaptions program. In this adaptions program for the baylands habitat, students will learn about how Baylands animals and plants have adapted to live in this brackish environment. We will discover different kinds of baylands plants, how bird’s beaks help them eat specific kinds of food, and how the skeletons of animals help them in their environment! Supplies needed (not provided): 2 utensils: Fork, spoon, butter or dinner knife, chopsticks, slotted spoon, tongue depressors/popsicle sticks, tweezers, pliers, blunt children’s scissors, food clips, clothes pins, or some other smallish tools. 2 plates 2 possible foods (any of the following will do): Something long and skinny like spaghetti or twigs (5 pieces) Something rounded like marbles, dry macaroni, dry beans or dry peas (5 pieces) Something flat like coins, buttons or cut up cardboard pieces (5 pieces) This program will be 90 minutes long, and recommended for grades 1-6. Registration is limited. Registration is required to receive a link and password. Registration will close 1 hour before the program begins. Links and passwords will be emailed at least 30 minutes before the program. You will be placed in a waiting room until the program is ready to begin.
