Weather and Animal Adaptations

MSU Tollgate Farm in Novi, Michigan has interactive, educational, and fun school and community field trips designed for a variety of ages.

Weather and Animal Adaptations (September through early November): What is the connection between weather and how animals (including humans) use resources to survive? Engage with our farm animals in the fall and learn how animals use their internal and external parts to survive. Explore animal adaptations and how they use the world around them to survive while taking an exiting tour of the farm. Help care for the farm animals while you observe animal body coverings and how they help the animal cope with the coming cold. Make and use weather instruments to collect weather data on the farm and compare with measurements taking in your schoolyard.



Programs $ 12/per adult or child. Teachers are free. Financial aid process available.
