Wild World of Slime Molds

June 4, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Wild World of Slime Molds

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
