Composting: Wiggle with Worms

Discover how worms and other decomposers are nature’s recyclers! Like us, worms need natural resources to survive. Find out what natural resources they need by playing a “feed the worm” game. Observe live worm behavior and anatomy with magnifiers, along with some of their fellow decomposers from the worm bin. When held at Retzer Environmental Learning Center, students will learn what it means to close the composting loop during our interactive exhibit tour (add 15 minutes to program duration)!

Minimum of 15 participants required, maximun of 30 participants.
