Nature 101: Invertebrates

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Join us for the second of two lectures this Fall taught by Phyllis Griffard, Lecturer at UH-Downtown.

This series of outdoor Natural History classes will introduce you to the plants and animals that live throughout the Houston area.

The Fall Series introduces the various classification systems of life and the proliferation of invertebrate animals.

Over 90% of the animals on Planet Earth have no backbone. This class will investigate how invertebrates survive without an internal skeleton and the different adaptations that allow some terrestrial invertebrates to thrive under a rotting log.

Date: Saturday, November 1 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Note: Teachers can earn 2 hrs SBEC credit. Master Naturalists can earn Advanced Training by taking this course. At least one hour will be spent outdoors, so dress appropriately!<
Class size: 6 min. / 20 max.
Cost: $40M / $65 NM
