Virtual Field Trip – Oyster Reef Ecology
The River Center is offering virtual field trip programs this Fall! On select Wednesdays our River Center educators are providing specific topics for our virtual experiences.
Our mission is to foster a sense of environmental stewardship for the Loxahatchee River’s diverse watershed with quality programs, educational exhibits, and meaningful events.
Program Times: 10 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
This field trip is all about oysters!
This activity includes a habitat assessment using samples taken directly from the Loxahatchee River (oyster restoration bags). Macro and Micro organisms are discovered, identified, and classified using microscopes. Students are getting a firsthand look at the primary consumers of the food web in relation to fish nursery food supplies.
Recommended: Grades 3-5 (adaptable for 6-8)
