I led a group of students and faculty on Saturday (4/27) to get observations for the iNaturalist City Challenge. I offered extra credit for the observations and so I had several students show up.

    A very strange observation I am guessing that this is dog vomit slime mold because it seems to be the only things that fits. It was soft to the touch and seemed to grow upwards as it engulfed the blades of grass (as opposed to being dropped on it).
