This fall, get "The Scoop on Poop!" at the Springs Preserve

New interactive exhibit opens September 26

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Sep. 12, 2011 - The largest exhibit ever created about the science of scat, The Scoop on Poop! is on display September 26, 2011 through January 8, 2012, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily in the Origen Museum at the Springs Preserve.

Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet poop is one of those subjects we find hard to talk about without cracking a smile. The Scoop on Poop! a fascinating, investigative exhibit based on the popular book by Dr. Wayne Lynch, invites kids of all ages to learn a lot about an animal by looking at what it leaves behind. A tactful blend of good science and fun, the exhibit is produced by Peeling Productions at Clyde Peeling’s Reptiland.

Come explore colorful, three-dimensional, hands-on displays with compelling titles such as Poop Has Many Names, Fecal Framework, Who Dung it? Diagnostic Doo, and Dangerous Droppings. Visitors are invited to listen in on an animal’s digestive system, learn the language of poop from countries around the world, examine fecal samples in a veterinarian’s lab, compete in dung beetle races, track wild animals through clues left in scat, see how long it takes an elephant to poop their body weight, improve their “number two IQ” in stool school, and meet a dinosaur dung detective.

Visit September 26, 2011 through January 8, 2012, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily in the Origen Museum. Admission to The Scoop on Poop! is free for Springs Preserve members or included with General Admission.

The Springs Preserve is located at 333 South Valley View Boulevard, between U.S. 95 and Alta Drive.
