DETROIT (AP) - A group of girls from Detroit-area middle schools will learn about global warming and the impact pollution has on wildlife habitats.

They will join environmentalists and fish and wildlife experts Saturday at the state Department of Natural Resources Outdoor Adventure Center in Detroit.

The girls are affiliated with the Neighborhood Service Organization in Detroit and Green School Alliance. The workshop will be hosted by The Black Women’s Agenda, Inc., a national nonprofit.

Activities will include the dissection of feathers to discuss how climate change is affecting birds. The girls also will conduct an experiment showing how pollution impacts fish and other sea life.

The Outdoor Adventure Center opened this summer just east of downtown. The three-story, 41,000-square-foot indoor facility features hands-on, interactive exhibits including a 40-foot-tall, man-made tree.
