Habitats and Adaptations Program
Freshwater environments such as creeks, rivers, lakes and dams are home to many different species of insects, crustaceans and worms, collectively referred to as “waterbugs”. In this program we look at the habitats that may be present in our freshwater environments and why they are important to particular waterbugs. We also look at some of the different adaptations these creek critters have to survive in such a watery environment in a fun and engaging way. Students will get up close and personal to some live waterbugs in their very own creek sample!
