About the event

Pond Ecology

Fort Family Park, 8000 Baymeadows Rd E, Jacksonville, FL 32256


We will meet at the pavilion near the playground at the very back of the park. (Pavilion 1 or 3)

What to Expect

We will begin by playing a pond game. Then we will be water quality testing and getting an idea of the habitat. Finally, we will go exploring around the pond for critters and attempt to identify them.

Who Is This For?

This program is appropriate for school age children through high school. (Ages 5-17) It will be fun and hands on for the younger kids, while still being challenging enough for older kids. Parents are welcome to stay during the program.

What to Bring

Bugspray, water bottle, closed toed shoes or sandals, long pants for walking through brush. We will not be going into the water.
