Travel Programs

The following hands-on programs are available at your location this 2018-19 season: bears, winter ecology, wildlife adaptations, trees, C.O.P.S. (descriptions below). Each program presented can take from 1-2 hours, depending on your schedule. We limit the program session to a maximum of 40 students to maintain quality. If your school/organization would like to schedule more than one program on the same day, there are cost savings. Each session cost includes materials, 2 instructors, and our travel time from the Delta-Schoolcraft ISD, where our main office is located.

If your school has extremely small classes or is unable to cover the cost, please contact us to negotiate a price or to see if there are any grant funds available.


Progam Descriptions

  • Bears: an exploration of North American bears with a focus on Michigan’s resident - the Black Bear.
  • Winter Ecology: what takes place when the days get shorter, the air gets colder, and precipitation is fluffier? Let’s investigate!
  • Wildlife Adaptations: how do animals survive and thrive in their ecosystems, especially in winter? Discover hibernacula, migration routes, and snowy hunting habits in this program.
  • Trees: cookies you don’t eat, products we use, homes for critters – so many important parts to being a tree…should we cut them or leave them?
  • C.O.P.S: (CLEC Observational Patrol Squad):  Scientific methods to investigating phenomena and mysteries. Do we really just observe with our eyes? Once we have observed, how can we best report to our peers? What evidence can we give for our suppositions? Are we conscious of bias in our investigations? Explore a mystery together, report your observations, test your skills.
