Students are engaged in the hands-on explorations of the connections between animals and the local ecosystems. YES club members discover the unique aspects of animals living and thriving here in the Pikes Peak region. Students dive deeply into wildlife management scenarios and become experts on the limited resources available for animals. They will dissect a grasshopper, make a bat house, become a nature detective to identify furs and skulls as well a visit local parks and experiences the wild world of local animals. Students will show off what they learned at a science symposium at the end of the semester!
