Young Naturalists

September 16th — Humongous Fungus

Lambton County Heritage Forest, Port Franks

1pm — 3pm


You will never look at your pizza the same way again! 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 complex web of friendships, rivalries, and business relations. This will turn your understanding of forests upside down! Come learn about the humongous impact the fungus amongus 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!
