Slime Mold Field Walk

July 20 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
North Branch Nature Center, 713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602
By Donation

The slime molds are fruiting!  These tiny predators hunt like amoebas, fruit like mushrooms, and come in a wide array of (astonishingly tiny) shapes and vibrant colors. Join Shelby Perry on a field exploration to learn the basic life cycle of slime molds, find and identify a handful of common local species, and learn a bunch of neat new vocabulary words like plasmodium, columella, aethalium, and plasmodiocarp.  It will be less slimy --and more fun-- than you think!
