The “Exploring Habitats” field trip project is co-sponsored by Marin Master Gardeners and MAGC. Taking place in the inspiring Butterfly Habitat Garden, these field trips are educational and enriching to children, exposing them to aspects of nature and the environment and teaching them the concept of a habitat and the interrelatedness of various components of a habitat that they might not receive otherwise. Students delve into four distinct habitats – bird and butterfly garden, ponds, the woodland understory and composting. Some examples of things they may see and learn about are:

  • pond life
  • beneficial insects
  • compost critters
  • woodland trees, understory plants and wildlife
