Exciting Horticulture Discovery!

The professionals of the BPC Parks Horticulture department discovered a unique life form thriving in their thermal compost yesterday.   Tardigrades, also known as Waterbears, are a resilient species of water-dwelling, segmented micro-animals, with eight legs.  They are one of the astonishing life forms currently featured in the Museum of Natural History’s exhibition, “Life At the Limits”.

For footage of these incredible creatures taken through the microscope of our composting facility, click here.
