Potawatomi Zoo is in the state of Indiana, a state of many habitats. When traveling through the state, what kind of habitats do you see? A river? A forest? A farm field? This week of camp, we will discover 8 different habitats that are found in Indiana. From the Indiana Dunes to the Ohio River, and everything in between, we will explore the characteristics of each of these habitats, meet animals from each ecosystem, conduct freshwater macroinvertebrate ecology, play games, make crafts, and more!
