Summer Explore, Dandy Decomposers – The Institute

Wednesdays June 23rd – Wednesday July 28th * 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM
The Institute is offering a series of six new outdoor adventure programs in June & July.
Designed for kids in grades K to 5, the EXPLORE! at Pine Hill Recreation Area in Waynesboro, Pa.
All program activities are outside. Each week will feature a different theme.
Taught by Institute educators, every program includes educational activities related to the season and theme.
The theme for July 21 is Dandy Decomposers.
Kids will explore the park and see decomposers hard at work, breaking down old material and recycling it into new life (like a worm that eats leaves and dead plant matter, or a fungus that helps to rot old logs).
You might be surprised how many places you can find these helpful organisms!
Participants will learn about decomposition and what it is, how it can be done, and will see real life examples of decomposers doing their jobs.
Grades: K–5
Cost: $5 member, $6 non-member. Pre-registration is required.
