When you really put the forest floor on a pedestal and examine it, things can get kind of gross really quickly. All that nutritious and delicious dark fertile soil is made from the remains of living things. Mostly organic plant material, but the occasional squirrel, roly-poly and deer are an essential part of the forest floor’s ecosystem. Everything eventually perishes and returns to the ground to feed new life. Join us as we take a fascinating look at decomposition! We will look at how carbon is stored in life before being released back into the world, how entire communities can survive off of a fallen tree for years and even watch a worm poop! The perfect topic to explore right before Halloween! Our youngest explorers will have the opportunity to put together their own wiggly worm bookmarks to take home!

Registration not required but appreciated! Enjoy Nature Center open hours too.
