Many species of animals migrate as an adaptation to help them be successful. Did you know the Artic Tern travels 40,000 miles during migration but then some native amphibians only travel a few hundred feet?  During this program we will explore the how and why of animal migration.  Migration is truly magnificent. This workshop will be led by environmental educator Jay DeGregorio.
