Explores reptiles and birds that are found in the park and their adaptations for survival. You’ll get to meet some of the animal ambassadors of Carrie Murray Nature Center and learn about how they got here, their habitat needs, and their survival superpowers.

Pre-visit Videos. Have your class watch at least one video tour from the program of your choice.  Students should generate questions, which need to be sent to the Carrie Murray guide before the live chat.
