When a tree falls in the forest, does it still make a sound if no one’s there to hear it?  We can’t answer that for you, but we can tell you who cleans up the mess!  Fungi may not look like much, but they’re the mighty crew of debris clearing organisms!  Come into the center on this special Saturday as we hang with UCR’s Botany and Plant Sciences Department to learn all about how fungi clean up nature’s mess.  It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it!  So join us as we trust the fungus- because without them, we’d be well up to our elbows in decomposing matter!
