Ancient Forest Exploration
Journey back in time, and into one of the most majestic and awe-inspiring habitats ever created. How do ancient, "old-growth" forests differ from other forests? Which animals rely on our diverse old-growth habitats for food, shelter, and clean water? Students will handle specimens of a Flying Squirrel, Marbled Murrelet, Pileated Woodpecker, Red Tree Vole, and other wildife endemic to ancient forests. Students will then hike through the ancient forest and use the knowledge they're gained for a close-up look at nurse logs, snags, and 500-year-old trees.
