Applications for the 2012–2013 school year have been closed.
Urban youth may have little knowledge of or interaction with the plant world that ultimately sustains human life.
Students learn the names and functions of the parts of plants through a flower dissection in the Crissy Field Center Urban Ecology Lab.
At the Crissy Field marsh, students divide into teams of research botanists, study indigenous plants in the field, and learn to describe their discoveries to one another. In the Arts Workshop, they will have the chance to record the knowledge they have gained as they create their own field guides for the Crissy Field.
This program is available on Thursdays.
The best months for studying Crissy Field plants are February, March, April, and May.
3 hours, Grades 4–6.
