Fall and Spring Program

The soil is ALIVE! Your group will be amazed when they examine soil from different field sites. Students will select plots to collect soil samples to observe. They will learn through inquiry as they find differences in the soils, plants, and general ecosystems at each location. At their last plot, our gardens, they will learn about the magic of compost. Students will have the knowledge to compost on their own when the day is over!

Grades: all ages

Fees: Programs are $8 per person/student. Small groups are welcome, but there is a minimum of $100 per group to cover the expense of prepping and running the program.
