Sure, mushrooms can be tasty treats, but Missouri’s fungi offer dazzling colors, shapes, and life cycles. Join us for a program about mushroom appreciation, art, and exploration. Participants will go for a short hike over moderately hilly terrain in seach of fungi. Then back to that lab for spore printing, microscope fun, and other fungi related activities. This program is not designed for edible mushroom ID, but instead to open your eyes to some of the most important and overlooked forest inhabitants. Participants should bring sturdy athletic or hiking footwear and a bottle of water.
