Hooray for decay! Get your hands dirty—literally—as you explore the process of decomposition at Wave Hill. Investigate the forest floor, handle real-life scavengers and decomposers, learn about osteology, the study of bones and skeletal elements, try to reassemble a skeleton, get composting info and make wearable art inspired by decomposers.  Join a parade of walking snags to celebrate our decomposer friends.
