But what really makes Darwin a great subject for a corn maze isn't his contentious and polemic scientific dissertations, it's his LONG SCRUFFY BEARD! His tangle of whiskers is the perfect pretext for a bewildering array of maze trails.Pretty Cool! I aim to be in the beard some time in September. Here are directions to Mike's Maze.
Our maze game is inspired by Darwin's famous quote "I love fools' experiments. I am always making them." Mazegoers will be challenged to identify and classify all living vertebrates and more. Because that's too easy they will also make their own close observations from images of biological curiosities found in the natural history collections of Amherst College and Greenfield Community College. And wait! There's more. They will need to naturally select the right trails in and out of Chuck's curly chin cilia. We expect no complaints this year that the maze and the game are too easy!
