The 7th grade science classes are pleased to welcome Dan Argo, a local mycologist, on Friday, October 16th.
Dan will speak to the classes about his specialty, fungi. The 7th grade science class is entering a Unit on ecology and decomposers are often overlooked next to the larger more common organisms.
