What do lowly millipedes, mushrooms and land mollusks have in common? They are star players on the decomposition squad that makes life on earth sustainable for all of us. Stop by Decomposition Central to chat with entomologist Lindsay Velazco and naturalist Pam Golben as they de-mystify the de-composition process. Visit the Scavenger and Decomposer Petting Zoo to see and touch some friendly scavengers and decomposers, and observe scavenging dermestid (flesh-eating) beetles at work. Then pick up a self-guided garden scavenger hunt to look for—what else?—scavengers! Scavengers & Decomposers Weekend event. Free with admission to the grounds.
Venue: Wave Hill Public Gardens
4900 Independence Ave
