Young Naturalists: Humongous Fungus
October 14, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
You will never look at your pizza the same way again! Come learn about the humongous impact the fungus among us has on our lives while we explore the diversity hiking the Lambton County Heritage Forest. Finish off combining science and art by making a spore print!
Seemingly small and insignificant, they are anything but. They come in a dazzling array of colours, shapes, and forms with equally as intriguing natural histories. Above ground, on trees, and on the surfaces of others are the things that humans have collected and revered for thousands of years for their edible and medicinal properties. Beyond view these strange creatures penetrate within and beneath forests, building underground networks where deals are made in a complex web of friendships, rivalries, and business relations. This will turn your understanding of forests upside down!
Meet at the Port Franks Community Centre.
Please RSVP by emailing the names and ages of participants and the name of the parent or guardian who will be accompanying to firstname.lastname@example.org.
