Click To Enlarge

Classroom Presentations availiable for WEEK DAYS only. For information on booking presentations for evening and weekends, or for Birthday Parties, please contact our office directly.

Decomposers: the fascinating, underappreciated and incredibly vital organisms that clean up our world. An close-up look at how worms and other backyard bugs work to transform garden or kitchen waste into fertilized soil. Observe the secret life of worms and their underground world, including decomposers like isopods, leeches, beetle larvae and even cockroaches! We'll debunk common myths about our underground allies and kids will get to see the composting process as it happens, and learn about what can and can't be composted by nature's clean-up crew. Includes instruction on how to set up a worm composting bin of your own.

This is a "hands on" learning experience with lots of time for questions and digging in the dirt. Our specialty is NATIVE SPECIES.

Program appropriate for grades 2-4.

Specifically written for Grade 4 curriculum program, "Waste and our World."
