Biology Project- Fairchild Challenge 3- EXTRA CREDIT
Will earn you a test pass (where you take a test and if you score poorly, you get to use the pass to excuse the test)
Due Date: Monday December 2, 2019
What will you have to do? Create an educational board game that increases the probability that seed dispersers and pollinators transport seeds and pollen across developed areas of pine rocklands.
Background: Pine rocklands, one of the world’s most imperiled ecosystems, once spanned across more than 120,000 acres. Currently, there are less than 2% of the pine rockland ecosystem outside of Everglades National Park much of which exists only as fragmented parcels. Fairchild’s Connect to Protect Network is a conservation program geared towards improving gene flow and genetic health of native plant species by connecting these remaining isolated patches.
Make sure to include the following:
o Board game that fits the description above (of a pine rockland ecosystem with a native plant species and a pollinator/seed dispersal as the goal of the game).

Some Plant Species found in pine rock lands: Saw Palmetto, Bracken Fern, Muhly Grass, Dodder Vine, Poisonwood, Pineland Croton, Blazing Star etc.
