We were excited to hear the University of Minnesota is soon to have an exhibit entirely on one of our favorite topics - soil! It kicks off November 10 and is called "Dig It! The Secrets of Soil." Here's a little blurb about it from an online U of M newsletter:
Did you know there are more living creatures in a shovelful of soil than there are human beings on the planet? Learn all about soil, one of our planet's most important yet often-ignored components, at "Dig It! The Secrets of Soil," the new exhibit coming this fall to the Bell Museum of Natural History. The exhibit’s timing couldn’t be better, arriving in time to mark theDepartment of Soil, Water and Climate’s centennial celebration. "Dig It!" tells the story of the world beneath our feet through interactive displays, video models, photography and special events. The exhibit is sponsored by the Soil Science Society of America. Visit and discover the complex world of soil, and how this hidden ecosystem supports nearly every form of life on earth.
If you're in Minnesota or near and get to go, let us know how it is! If we get up there to check it out, we'll also report back.
