Home School WinterScience Series 2018

January 26 • 10:30am – 12pm • Snakes of Cobb County

Georgia is home to more than 40 species of snakes and Cobb County has its fair share. While some people fear them and some are facinated by them, everyone can, and should, learn more about them! How have snakes adapted to survive in their environment? Which species in Georgia are venomous and how can you tell? Most importantly, how do snakes benefit our ecosystem? Come participate in a slide show and a lab-style activity about snakes and their adaptations. Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

February 27 • 11am – 12:30pm • Frogs of Cobb County

Georgia has about 30 species of frogs and nearly half of those can be found in Cobb County. This program focuses on local species, and how you can identify which species are calling in your neighborhood. Participants will learn how to identify 13 species by call. Listening for frogs species is fun and can be useful too! Participants are welcome to join our Frog Monitoring Program by simply letting us know what frogs you are hearing. Come learn about our local frogs, including what they can tell us about our environment.

This course is suited for ages 8 and up, though families are welcome. Younger siblings and schoolmates must be attended by an adult at all times.
Parents/guardians/teachers must remain on site for the duration of these programs. No drop-offs please.
