Happy Hibernation

Who's hibernating this winter? Is it a sleepy bear, shivering snake or a too cold turtle? Why do animals hibernate? Where do they go? We'll make our own hibernation stations and climb inside for the winter. Make a sleepy bear craft. Eco Adventures is great for those that want to hibernate! Zzzzzzzz, hope you're all sleepy.

Iceberg Incoming 

Icebergs are massive chunks of ice but are light enough to float in the ocean! How does that work?!? Conduct an experiment with us to see what objects float, what objects sink and learn about buoyancy.

Eco Adventures

Freezing Friends

Winter is coming and we are pulling out our coats and hats, but what about the animals that live outside? Discover how animals survive the cold winter or the even colder temperatures in places like the Arctic!

Grant's zebras are a subspecies of the Burchell's zebra. They live in family groups consisting of one male, a number of females and their offspring. The are native to savannah and open woodland areas in East and South Africa.

Best Buddies: Animal Teams 

Have you ever seen a herd of Zebras? Those stripes are very distracting and Zebras use them to deter predators! And dolphins work in teams to hunt for food. This class is all about learning how animals work together as teams to survive in the wild!

Eco Adventures

Beautiful Birds

In the winter our pretty flowers and colorful leaves disappear but here at Eco we will be looking for bright flashes of colors and flapping wings! Birds have bright beautiful feathers but its not just for us to look at, their feathers help them with many things. In this class we are going to be learning about why birds have such bright feathers!

Eco Adventures and the Home School Community:

"My 10 year old son and I attended the open house before the grand opening of Eco Adventures in Millersville a year ago. I knew right away that this was a place I wanted my son to attend and I knew it would be wonderful for our family and for the home school community. The staff was willing to work with me and set up a home school class and from the very first adventure we were hooked! 

Each class includes hands on animal experiences and this is the only place I have ever been that always seems to say yes in some fashion to the children — Yes, you can touch this way. Yes, we can do that. Yes, we can bring an animal out to look at and learn about. The atmosphere is relaxed and the children are always engaged and excited to learn. They cover so many topics and always in a way that is fascinating. My son enjoyed the program so much that he started working towards the Junior Assistant program and just this July, after 9 months of preparing, he passed the interview and reached his goal. This will be an excellent addition to his home school transcript and we hope to have a working/school relationship with Eco Adventures for many years to come."
