How does the sun, amount of precipitation, along with other factors affect the flora and fauna that call home to these ecosystems here in our backyard? This experience will help you understand how everything is connected in nature, and when you take away one element everything will be affected. Come explore more about the abiotic/biotic factors in an ecosystem, and the cycles that are always occurring. Be prepared to get our hands dirty as we investigate the natural world for evidence of decomposers!
