Grades 1-8 | Seacoast Science Center presents Coastal Critters, Life Between the Tides - May 20, 2020 12:10pm EST
About this event:
Life between the tides can be tough. Join Seacoast Science Center naturalists for a virtual field trip to the shore, to explore the animals and plants that make inter tidal habitats their home. Learn about some of their amazing and sometimes funny physical and behavioral adaptations that make life in these challenging environments possible. This program highlights how individual species and entire classes of creatures have adapted to survive on the rocky shore, the sandy beach and the salt marsh. Students will see dramatic time-lapse images of the tidal cycle, videos of animal behavior, sea stars eating, lobsters molting, and footage of our tide pools. Our Seacoast Science Center naturalist will bring out live animals, demonstrate how these inter tidal animals feed, hunt, and protect themselves, and take students on a virtual trip to the Center and its tide pools.
