Everything was found a few hundred yards from the classroom in less than an hour so a pretty good list considering the amount of time we had. Lots of different slime molds today. There were also a few species that were difficult to identify due to their condition or our lack of familiarity with them.

Species list entered by Richard Jacob. Identifiers Fluff Berger and John Stuart with help from Richard Jacob.
