Patrons will learn about different classes of microbes, their morphology, and learn how to culture petri-film, and test pH of various experimental mediums.

Wrap it all up by meeting farm animals and learning to care for them just like Laura and Mary. Based on book: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this program can incorporate reading the book and eating between stations. The program can last 4-8 hours, depending on age group and individual or combinations of stations. Great for the 2019 summer reading program.
