Fun with Farmer Fred!
Join the Lander Children's Museum and Adventures in Learning for a fun, hands-on inquiry, and place-based learning experience. The two main themes of the program are 1) sustainable gardening/growing and 2) stream ecology and water quality.
The morning session of the program includes soil basics, how to develop healthy organic soils, seed characteristics and germination requirements, and transplanting seedlings to the garden. The afternoon stream ecology and water quality experience includes an invertebrate dip net activity and analysis and identification of the invertebrates, the characteristics of a watershed and environmental consequences of man made modifications to it, and the physical characteristics of a stream.
