About Meddling with Nature
Meddling with Nature is dedicated to exploring the connection between art and natural science.

Meddling with Nature’s goal includes a mandate to educate the public on both biological and naturalist themes through direct, hands on experience. Meddling with Nature is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016 and is producing a number of events throughout the year.
