Springfield Museums Exhibit "The Scoop on Poop"

Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet “poop” is one of those subjects we find difficult to talk about with a straight face. Kids, however, are positively fascinated by it, which provides a great opportunity for learning and exploration. The 4,000 square-foot exhibit also explores how people from veterinarians and paleontologists to Maasai tribesmen and power companies utilize animal waste. Excrement is also a scientific detective puzzle, since much can be learned about an animal from what it leaves behind. May 28 through September 4, 2016.

Springfield Museums Exhibit "The Scoop on Poop"

Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet “poop” is one of those subjects we find difficult to talk about with a straight face. Kids, however, are positively fascinated by it, which provides a great opportunity for learning and exploration. The 4,000 square-foot exhibit also explores how people from veterinarians and paleontologists to Maasai tribesmen and power companies utilize animal waste. Excrement is also a scientific detective puzzle, since much can be learned about an animal from what it leaves behind. May 28 through September 4, 2016.

New Century Theatre Presents Yankee Tavern

June 16-25. An edge-of-your-seat thriller. Set in the crumbling New York City bar that Adam has recently inherited from his father, he and his fiancée plan for their upcoming wedding while dealing with the bar's curious clientele. These customers include an aging barfly who has a conspiracy theory for everything-especially 9/11--and a mysterious stranger of few words who blurs the line between conspiracy theory and reality.

Springfield Museums Exhibit "The Scoop on Poop"

Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet “poop” is one of those subjects we find difficult to talk about with a straight face. Kids, however, are positively fascinated by it, which provides a great opportunity for learning and exploration. The 4,000 square-foot exhibit also explores how people from veterinarians and paleontologists to Maasai tribesmen and power companies utilize animal waste. Excrement is also a scientific detective puzzle, since much can be learned about an animal from what it leaves behind. May 28 through September 4, 2016.

Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet “poop” is one of those subjects we find difficult to talk about with a straight face. Kids, however, are positively fascinated by it, which provides a great opportunity for learning and exploration. The 4,000 square-foot exhibit also explores how people from veterinarians and paleontologists to Maasai tribesmen and power companies utilize animal waste. Excrement is also a scientific detective puzzle, since much can be learned about an animal from what it leaves behind. May 28 through September 4, 2016.
