Join the DABB Team and WisCorps members in the The Nature Place’s garden at Myrick Park and explore the wonderful world of DECOMPOSERS!

Listen to a book reading (readings start at 12:45 and will be done every 15 minutes) and then go and find decomposers in the WisCorps garden! There will be members of The Nature Place including Stephanie Hanna, Environmental Education Manager, to help you find Worm McWorm and his decomposer friends! There will also be DABB Team members to help take photos and upload to iNaturalist to become a citizen scientist! This is a BioBlitz data collection event which encourages everyone with a cell phone or a camera and a computer to become a “citizen scientist.” Using the iNaturalist app or webpage, we will focus on finding and identifying insect species in the garden.

As a bonus, the first 50 children who attend Bugs in the Garden BioBlitz will receive a free copy of Nick Nichols’ book, “Worm McWorm & the Decomposers!”
