K-12, May – October, 90 min
Farms are the ideal places to witness biodiversity in action. In this 90-minute field trip, students will discover both beneficial “helper” insects and harmful pests that make farming challenging. Students will engage in organic pest management practices, identify and examine insects and worms, and plant seeds to cultivate pollinator pathways. This workshop allows students to gain a deeper understanding of ecosystems, habitats, and the food chain through the fascinating microcosm of the insect world.
