Schlitz Audubon encompasses 185 acres of diverse habitats. Students identify the variety of plants and animals that live in the forest, ponds, wetlands, prairies, and Lake Michigan. Through a food web activity, create connections between these biotic beings and compare how they are similar and different for each habitat. Explore the trails in search of evidence of the plants and animals living at the Center. Concepts students learn include niche habitats, adaptations of plants and animals, and the importance of maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
