The Amazon Gold Rush is a small man-made stream where kids of all ages can stake their claim for real Gold Pyrite (AKA Fool’s Gold)!
You could be the next lucky treasure hunter. Are you ready to make your claim? Each bag of Gold Pyrite bearing mining rough is different, so you never know much Gold Pyrite you will find until you pan for it at our stream! The excitement of finding a hidden treasure makes this an activity you will want to do again and again!!
Have you heard of Fools Gold? Well, it’s a stone that looks like real gold, but it’s not gold at all. Fool’s Gold has made a fool out of many a treasure hunter looking to strike it rich! Fool’s Gold is Pyrite, which is a mineral composed of iron sulfide. This mineral forms a cube-like structure and has a brassy, golden metallic color that makes it look just like real gold!

THE ROOTS OF LIFE & THE LUNGS OF THE WORLD
FREE - EDUCATIONAL EXHIBIT
PLANTS ARE THE ROOTS OF LIFE, AND TREES ARE THE LUNGS OF THE WORLD!
Plant roots are those underground portion of a plant that store food, absorb water and minerals from soil that the plant needs to live and grow, and anchor the plant in the earth to prevent erosion.
Roots are the foundation of life. Come discover the secret life of roots!
What do tree rings tell us about the past and present?
Dendrochronology is the study of data from tree ring growth.
Trees are an enormous feature in the global landscape, and are the lungs of the world, as they absorb a large part of the carbon dioxide put into the atmosphere.
They’re fascinating in that they have the ability to record environmental changes. Tree rings generally grow wider during warm periods and narrower during cold ones, so their rate of growth provides a picture of Earth’s temperature over the past centuries.
Changes in tree growth rates as seen in their tree rings also supply clues about possible disturbances that may have affected the tree. An abrupt decline in tree growth rates, marked by narrower rings suggests some event occurred during the life of the tree that damaged or reduced its ability to grow.
Come count, and learn about tree rings, and find out how rainy or dry a season was by observing tree ring growth.
This exhibit is a great resource to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom!
