Are You a "Fun-gi?"

Find out everything about fungus and become a fungus detective at IRWS!

What's the deal with fungus? Is it a plant? Is it an animal? Is it something in between? And just what do fungi do anyway? Answer all these questions and more! We will begin by learning about the function of fungi and the many different forms, colors, and habitats in which they can be found.

We will then hike out to Averill's Island where we'll put the "fun" in fungi! You'll have the chance to use mushrooms to build a gnome home, learn how to create an artistic spore print, and hone your fungus-hunting skills with a scavenger hunt!
