Pond Ecology

Join Jax Dragonfly Academy to learn about the secrets inside a freshwater pond.

Activities include:

  • Using tools to test the temperature, clarity, and more of the water

  • Scavenger hunt for water plants, ID like a scientist

  • Using dip nets to catch critters in the water


Students will use their skills of observation to learn about the many plants that are adapted to a freshwater environment. They will safely catch critters around the pond and attempt to identify them. 

This program is appropriate for kids Ages 5-17. Each ticket purchased is for a program participant. Children under 5 years old are asked not to participate for safety reasons. Parents are asked to stay during the program. The length is approximately 2 hours, but you may stay after the program to explore the park.
