Soil Investigatons

Choose either a single school-based program or field trip, or combine the two into a series.

What is soil made of? Compare different soil samples and investigate their properties using scientific tools. We can bring soil samples to you or we can explore soil near your school.

In the field, learn about how healthy soil supports healthy food and a healthy planet at Drumlin Farm or learn how soil holds secrets to the past at Broadmoor and Habitat.

Locations: Your school and/or any Metro West wildlife sanctuary (field trip theme varies by location)

Program Location(s):

  • Drumlin Farm, Lincoln

  • Your school or other location

Grades:

1, 2, 3

Price:

See current brochure for rates.
