Mini Mud Monsters

March 11th - 26th

Spring Break at the Britannia Mine Museum just got a little dirtier but a little dirt doesn’t hurt especially with the Museum’s fun, family-friendly, interpreter-led “Mini Mud Monsters” special educational programming inside their Terra Lab STEAM learning space.  

Taking place Wednesdays to Sundays (March 15 – 19 and March 22 – 26) from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the “Live in the Lab: Mini Mud Monsters” drop-in sessions inside the Terra Lab will focus on the important environmental remediation lessons of the Britannia Mines due to acid rock drainage, which occurs naturally when rainwater reacts with oxygen and exposed minerals. 

Participants will meet tiny organisms from nearby Britannia Creek and learn how they help us understand the impacts of mining on local ecosystems.
