Parents’ Day Out at Mercer Slough: FBI: Decomposition Detectives

There’s a mystery at Mercer Slough: all the dead matter keeps disappearing! Luckily, the FBI are on the job — Fungus, Bacteria and Invertebrates. Join our detective team and learn about the science of decomposition and explore how soil shapes the ecosystems found in the Slough. Practice sleuthing skills as we dig up clues on who lives below, hike through the wetlands to shakedown the trees, and see the suspects at large on Bug TV. It’s going to be good, dirty fun!
