Playscape Playdate: Soil and Stuff
Aug 25 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Soil is where we grow our food, build houses and construct roads. Animals use soil for digging tunnels, nesting and hiding from predators. But what is in soil and do different soils have “personality”? Come experiment and have some muddy fun.

Education Specialist Terri Brest will add fun activities and extra imagination during your Playscape visit. Join her any time during the play date to participate in the activities! In the event of inclement weather, an alternative indoor activity will be available.
