LYNDONVILLE – Participants in the “Snail Watches” science workshop observe a snail-paced race. The first snail to make it across the black border on the mat was declared the winner.

Participants ages 8 and up observed live invertebrates up close and additionally learned about the food web of a meadow through an outdoor game.

Rick Merritt (and family) led the program Thursday at the Yates Community Library.
