Nature's Recyclers

Breathing trees, worms and wetlands - what do they all have in common?  They are all "nature's recyclers" - examples of the natural world's way of recycling, reducing and reusing. This program briefly reviews the 4 Rs. Then an easy hike through the forest provides opportunities for investigating the ways nature reduces, recycles and reuses.  It includes

  • Demonstrations explaining how wetlands filter water and how plants photosynthesize

  • Examination of decomposers and decomposition
