NJ Soil Tunnel!

It's almost as much fun as making a mud pie, but on a larger, less gritty, scale. Passing under a large tree trunk, children -- and their grown-up relatives and friends -- can get an earthworm's perspective of the life that thrives in the soil when they enter the "Soil Tunnel." The inflatable, room-sized Soil Tunnel is available to schools and organizations throughout New Jersey. Click here for details.
