In order to survive in the wild you must prepare! Your students will find out how animals and even plants need to work in the fall to prepare for the winter. Find out why leaves change colour, squirrels bury their food and where all the birds seem to be flying. Seeing, touching, smelling and listening will help students explore the wonders of Ojibway’s natural environment. Choose from a wildflower study, hands-on snake talk, scavenger hunt or leaf craft to complete your Ojibway exploration.
This program highlights the lives of the amazing animals found at Ojibway Park. Their needs and characteristics are discovered as the students are guided through Ojibway's forest, pond and prairie communities.

Choose from a scavenger hunt, hands-on snake talk, or stump study to complete your Ojibway exploration.
