"BULLIES IN OUR WOODS"
The Children's Museum of PIttsburgh
Sept 19th-Jan 18th, 2009
Pittsburghers are so lucky to have vast, beautiful city parks. But there are bullies on the loose in our woods! Invasive vines and trees threaten to squeeze the life out of the huge variety of plants and trees that nature has evolved over thousands of years. We appreciate and use the parks in many ways, but our presence has caused that healthy balance in the woods to tip. Sit inside this tangle of vines, view the changing skies above, and listen to the sounds of our parks. How many different things can you hear? How can we keep our woods strong and continue to enjoy their many wonders?
