Learn why it’s important to have a variety of life. Get outside and conduct your own biodiversity investigation in your own backyard. Take a small step towards understanding how healthy Maine’s ecosystems are by collecting and analyzing data in your area. You will develop a better understanding of what makes an ecosystem healthy, and food webs by completing these hands-on investigations. Participants will receive a kit by mail to conduct investigations and gather data in their own backyard. As part of this series, we will compare discoveries about the ecological communities found around the state of Maine to see what might be the same and/or different based on where YOU live. Youth must register by July 23 so presenters have time to mail materials to participants’ homes.
