Excrement, the natural product of digestion, reflects the general health and diet of that organism.  However, some of its properties have been exploited for other purposes, such as for food, in agriculture, in products of beauty and allure, and in the treatment of disease.  Join a volunteer guide for a tour and discussion of excreta. 

This tour is not for children
