Come join us as we continue the 2017 Nights at Thoreau series with a fun, fun, fungal adventure to explore the world of mushrooms, molds, and other gooey things! We will learn about fungi that live in the woods, look at microbes under microscopes, and each child will get to take home their very own pet slime mold!  The total cost for the program is $40 ($36 or $32 for Friends of Lake Thoreau members) and includes snacks and breakfast the following morning. Participants can be dropped off between 6:00 P.M. and 6:30 P.M. on February 24th and can be picked up between 8:00 A.M. and 8:30 A.M, February 25th. Event is for kids in 3rd-6th grades.  We look forward to seeing you out at Thoreau!
