On May 12, the University of Nebraska State Museum in Morrill Hall will open ‘Bizarre Beasts,’ a new permanent exhibit that explores some of the strangest creatures ever to inhabit the Earth, past and present.
Learn how to be successful with composting by attending a composting demonstration sponsored by University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension in Lancaster County and the City of Lincoln Recycling Office.
These demonstrations will show you how to be successful with backyard composting. You will see three types of composting bins and how to use them. Every family will receive a composting thermometer.
Composting converts grass clippings, fallen leaves and other landscape leftovers into a nutritious soil amendment. It recycles plant nutrients, improves the soil's structure, improves drainage in clay soil and increases the water-holding capacity of sandy soil. And there's nothing difficult or complicated about making it.
