Spring: Up to 48 students (2 classes)
½ Day Program (2 hour program)

Swan Haven is a diverse and unique ecosystem. Energy is transferred through the system in many ways, and swans have an important part to play. In this half day program students will observe the different ecosystem roles of swans using spotting scopes, participate in a hands-on activity to explore how swans interact with their ecosystem and witness thermal energy in action with an exciting experiment.

Teachers are responsible for bus transportation to and from Swan Haven.
