Thanks to the guidance and expertise of EDC tour guides, our young scientists conducted investigations of local plants and animals in Central Park. It was fascinating to learn about the variety of pollinators- the ruby-throated hummingbird, bees, butterflies, beetles, birds and moths. We learned interesting facts about animals, too. Did you know that bees pollinate one-third of the food we eat? And moths pollinate white flowers because they're easy to find at night. And birds with an extra cone in their eyes pollinate red flowers. During our walking tour through the park, we identified lots of ferns, air plants, Spanish moss and pretty Morning Glories. We found lots of animals along the way, too - dragonflies, anhingas, spiders, snails, cicadas, racoons and turtles. Thank you to Mr. Price, Ms. Evert and all the wonderful volunteers for making learning so much fun!
