Wild World of Slime Molds
June 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Slime molds: what are they? They are the inspiration for sci fi movie monsters; are brainless yet capable of seemingly intelligent behavior; are not animal, plant, nor fungi; and they can be fun pets!
Join naturalist, Taro Ietaka, for an exploration of these interesting and unusual organisms. We’ll begin with a presentation in the gallery, followed by an adventure to find slime molds in nature. We’ll make our way back to the gallery to observe our findings under a microscope and create slime-ariums for everyone to take home!
Meet in the art gallery at the Visitor’s Center. Dress for a short hike and bring water.
In case of heavy rain, the program may be postponed; you will be notified via email the day before.
Max: 20 people
