Become an entomologist-in-training with naturalists from the Environmental Nature Center.
Learn more about the bugs that might make you go “ugh!” during this hands-on event.
Everybody poops and scientists use droppings, or “scat,” to learn about the animals they study. From migration patterns to health and diet, poop tells the story of the organism’s life.
Scientists even use fossilized dinosaur poop (coprolite) to tell them about the live of prehistoric animals. In this gross (but not too gross) presentation, scientists of all ages will get to become dropping detectives and learn how to unlock the secrets of dung!
