Biomes, Ecosystems, and Habitats Pop Up Tent

All weekend starting on 9/16 to 9/19, stop by Westport Woods to interact with the “Ecosystems” Pop Up Tent. Nate McCullum will be hosting a corresponding ‘Transitional Ecosystems Walk’ along the Westport Woods property to dive deeper on the ecosystems of Westport on September 17th.

In Westport MA, we are in a Deciduous forest Biome, found in Earth’s Temperate zones. Westport also supports wetlands, marshes, swamps, and bogs.

The main difference between a biome, ecosystem, and habitat is scale. A Biome is an area of the planet which can be classified according to the plant and animal life in it. Ecosystems are the community and interactions of living and nonliving things in an area. And Habitats are the environments where an organism lives throughout the year or for shorter periods of time.

The tent will highlight the food chains and food webs of the organisms inhabiting the deciduous forests, meadows, and wetlands around Westport.
