Remick Ramblers: Diggin’ for Decomposers at the Remick Museum

November 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

NOVEMBER 7 | Diggin’ for Decomposers
Come, join the Remick Ramblers on a quest for decomposers. Participants will:

  • Learn about the importance that invertebrates, microorganisms, and fungi play in cycling nutrients in the ecosystem. 
  • Roll logs, move leaves, and dig in the dirt to observe decomposers in their natural habitat.

Educational walks in nature!
Remick Ramblers is a new, nature-based exploration group for children available during traditional school hours. These nature walks are created and led by Program Manager/Museum Educator Jim Cruickshank (read his bio) and designed to encourage experiential learning.

  • Sessions are season-based and feature discovery through the senses and a variety of hands-on activities.
  • Group interaction and discussion encourage a deeper understanding of each themed session (listed below).
  • Sessions are offered October–June and are for students ages 6 and above.
  • Pre-registration is required, call 603-323-7591 to register.
    • Participants must sign up by the Monday prior to each scheduled class
    • We are unable to accommodate walk-ins for Remick Rambler sessions
  • Sessions take place rain/snow or shine; all participants should be prepared to spend the session time outdoors.
  • This is not a drop-off program: parents and guardians should be prepared to be with the group and are encouraged to participate.
  • Class size is limited and may be impacted by the scheduled class; early registration is encouraged.
