Dear Teachers,

Join the Fernbank Family

NatureQuest was designed with state curriculum standards in mind. Key concepts that can be explored in the exhibit include: habitats, lifecycles, basic needs of plants and animals, fossils, rocks, adaptation, camouflage, ecosystems, and more!

Explore Ecosystems

The six ecosystems featured in the exhibit are representative of Georgia. As students explore the habitats of Georgia, what might seem like play is actually a rich educational experience.  Like all of Fernbank's exhibitions, the experience is self guided. Download curriculum correlations and activity guides to make the most of your visit.
