The Soil Trailer is coming to town. A self-contained in a 12’ x 8.5’ enclosed trailer featuring soils and the interaction of our natural resources underground will be in Marysville on Wednesday. The professional design inside, outside, and on top of the trailer brings the world of soil to life. One side of the trailer educates viewers about the natural history of soil with 3-D worms, roots, and other organisms. Human impacts on soil, such as toxic waste and septic system contamination of the soil are featured on the opposite wall.
The professional design inside, outside, and on top of the trailer brings the world of soil to life. The designs for the sculptures and art work inside the walk-through display and the eye catching hand-painted soil profile horizons on the exterior were designed by Randall Bennett of Tall Grass Museum Services in Lawrence, Kansas. The trailer will be open to the public on Tuesday at the USDA Offices in Marysville.
