Join Early Childhood Art Educator and insect enthusiast Caroline Erb for a sweep net session in the meadows of Cliffdale Farm. What invertebrates will we find in the tall grass?
We all know that many animals depend on plants for food. But how do plants depend on animals? Meet the pollinators of Cliffdale Farm! The popular view of insects as troublemakers is broadening to an understanding of the vital role they play in nature and agriculture. In the meadows and gardens of our Cliffdale Farm, we will observe first-hand the activities of pollinators, play interactive games, and think about interdependence in ecosystems.
