Adaptable Armadillos

Armadillos are unique animals with special adaptations which allow them to live in a variety of habitats and meet their basic needs. Learn about our State small mammal, the Nine-banded Armadillo, and how they find food, shelter, and protect themselves from predators.

ASI: Animal Skull Investigation

This interactive presentation allows students the opportunity to investigate skulls of native Texas animals. Adaptations will be discussed between predators and prey and students will be asked to identify common structures of animal skulls and then determine their function(s). During the investigations, students will discover the feeding habits, survival adaptations, and finally the identity of our mystery specimens.

Aquifers and Spring Ecosystems

Water Cycle Series: The programs in this series introduce the basics of the water cycle and discuss specific water ecosystems. This program features groundwater which is found in underground rock formations called aquifers and the spring-fed ecosystems that they create.

Bats-A-Billion

This presentation will introduce students to different species of bats. We will look at their unique body structures and their functions that allow bats to fly, identify other special adaptations, as well as discuss their basic needs and diverse habitats. We will also discuss ways you can help these beneficial creatures and conserve their habitats.

Classifying Living Things

This presentation will introduce students to the classification system. Students will learn about the levels of taxonomy from Domain to Species and identify the basic characteristics of organisms with an initial focus on Domains and Kingdoms, followed by a look at some familiar classes of wildlife from the animal Kingdom. This program is intended for grades 4th and up, with a primary focus on 6th grade classification TEKS.

Food Chain Fun

This presentation will define food as a basic need as well as educate students about food chains and how energy flows from producers, to consumers, and decomposers. Students will also identify the components of an ecosystem and what may happen in an ecosystem if a link in the food chain is broken.

Complete Metamorphosis

The programs in this series investigate and compare how animals and plants undergo a series of orderly changes during their life cycle. Students will learn about the basic needs and physical characteristics that allow these organisms to survive through each stage of the life cycle.

Frog Life Cycle

The programs in this series investigate and compare how animals and plants undergo a series of orderly changes during their life cycle. Students will learn about the basic needs and physical characteristics that allow these organisms to survive through each stage of the life cycle.

Incomplete Metamorphosis

The programs in this series investigate and compare how animals and plants undergo a series of orderly changes during their life cycle. Students will learn about the basic needs and physical characteristics that allow these organisms to survive through each stage of the life cycle.

Let’s Talk Turkey

This interactive presentation introduces students to fun facts about one of our state’s most fabulous birds: THE WILD TURKEY! We will discuss turkey anatomy, adaptations, and habitat as well as the various “calls” or vocalizations that turkeys make to communicate.

The Magic of Monarchs

For such a delicate insect, the Monarch butterfly leads an adventurous life! During spring and fall, millions of Monarchs will travel through Texas on their way to or from their overwintering sites in Mexico. Join us as we discuss the basic needs, life cycle, adaptations, and migration patterns of the Monarch butterfly and learn how you can help conserve this unique creature.

Prairie Dogs (Grassland Ecosystem)

Scientists consider prairie dogs to be a keystone species that affect many aspects of the environment. Join us as we discuss the prairie dog’s importance in the ecosystem and their amazing adaptations. Many animals rely on prairie dogs in a variety of ways; their complex underground burrows provide habitat for several species, and they are a food source to many predators. We will also discuss prairie dog structures, their functions, and delve more into their underground habitats.
