Archived Webinar

This Zoom webinar featuring Museum Technician Ingrid Rochon aired July 17, 2021, as part of the "Natural History at Home" series. Watch a recording in the player above.


This video is all about the unique adaptations animals have to survive in their habitat. Museum Technician Ingrid Rochon leads an exploration of the canopy layer of the rainforest in Panama. She helps us practice identifying how the canopy and animal adaptations help meet the basic needs of the animals found there. Throughout the program, our educators also lead your family through creating a model of this habitat!

Moderators: Katie Derloshon and Caroline Herrero, museum educators at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
