Learn about fungi with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC)! Join us online to hear from Molecular Ecology Lab, take a tour of one of their field sites, and get a closer look at how fungus friends are helpers in our forests. We will be conducting a few different hands-on activities that you can follow along at home! All necessary materials for exploring the diversity of fungi will be provided at no cost.
