If there wasn’t enough to learn about the earth already, museum goers will soon be able to learn about every facet of the nation’s soil. The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the world’s most visited natural history museum, will launch a new exhibit about soil conservation and sustainability.
Opening next year on July 19, 2008 “Dig It! The Secrets of Soil” will feature a collection of state soils, hands-on educational games, multimedia programs, a large-screen theater, and other activities that will demonstrate to visitors the vital link between soil and the health of mankind, the environment, and our planet.
The soils exhibit will occupy a 5,000 square foot space and will be on display until January 2010.
