Roly Polies at Atwater



We learned all about the most famous garden pest – the roly poly! We learned that they are crustaceans, that they nibble on our plants, but they can be helpful decomposers…and much, much more! The kids know to head straight for the compost buckets when we’re hunting for rolies. We even found a mama Roly poly with babies hanging on! There’s a lot to discover in the soil.
