They will explore the environmental conditions of the habitat, the challenges for the plants that live there, and the ways plants have adapted to the challenges. Students will also have the opportunity to virtually explore the human uses of several plants from that habitat and help the staff member decide which 'new arrival' plant should be added to our Greenhouse!
