Wildlife Science After-school club

Learn about local amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. We’ll get up close and personal to learn about the lives of animals in the wilds nearby, and what we can do to help them thrive. As a group, we’ll choose and carry out science projects that will benefit wildlife on Cape Ann. We might help raise some rare baby salamanders, record birds found near downtown Gloucester, test the quality of local stream water, create wildlife photography for a library display, or even make a field guide to the hidden creatures living right around us. Each day we will play games, meet an animal or two, and work on a project. We will take several field trips into the community or the local woods. A project celebration day this winter will highlight students’ work.
