Science Academy

A biota node is a place where flora and fauna of the geographical area meet at an
intersection or in this case pond, (Man-made or natural). Our biota node is in its infancy
with limited planting surrounding the node. Endangered mud fish have been introduced to the node and have been cared for and checked at regular intervals.


Part of the Science Academy is to continue to develop our biota node and learn about the flora and fauna of our area. We do have opportunities to do scientific tests i.e. water clarity, saline content, etc. We check out traps that are aimed to catch pests in the most humane way possible. We may meet with vets, water experts, rangers, and a whole lot of other experts.
