Mushrooms and fungi are extremely cool. Join us for a walk on the wild side with fungal scientist and organizer of Florida Academic Lichen and Fungi Enthusiasts League, Sarah Prentice. Check out the local fungi and learn what may be in your back yard.

We’re hosting weekend Family Discovery Camps this July. Explore the natural world with scientists and Museum staff in this outdoor experience for the whole family. Discover how scientists work in the field and learn how to use the tools of science yourself.
