Program Description & Details

Soil is much more than rocks and old leaves – it’s a vibrant ecosystem. Since people walk on top of the soil, we often don’t consider what’s underneath. Your students will explore how soil is made, the layers of the soil, and the animals, plants, and fungi that both rely on and help create a healthy ecosystem.
