Tuesday, April 17 @ 6:00pm | Chewonki Presents: Beautiful Biomes                                     

From forests to deserts, and grasslands to the oceans, we will explore different biomes of our planet. Our focus is on three of the major biomes: rain forests, deserts and forests.

A closer look at the flora and fauna will reveal the adaptations necessary to thrive within these unique areas. Our lesson uses slides, real specimens, and three live, non-releasable animals to discuss some of the specific species that call these special places home. This program is suitable for ages 8 to adult and will be held in the Community Meeting Room.
