ARC Wild Returns to SFL

Who’s Eating Who? That is the question of the day when ARC Wild returns to Seneca Free Library Thursday, April 25. This program will be presented twice, at 3:30 and 5:30 PM.

Do you know where you belong in nature’s food WEB? Every meal you eat connects you to several food chains and makes you part of nature’s food web. Get hands on with some of nature’s super heroes and discover who’s eating whom. It’s a special investigative class you don’t want to miss!

March STEM Class

A small group gathered to play with a microscope; looking at fibers, the uniqueness of each person was discovered as well as how human hair fibers differ from dog, cat and synthetic fibers. Discussions on the use in solving crimes thru fiber identification were enlightening.
