The Fifth Kingdom Exhibit at BRIT (FYI)
June 27 – October 1, 2019 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Fungi are mostly unseen, hidden in the soil where they work their magic of recycling and providing nutrients to all plants. When they reproduce, however, some produce the unique, sometimes strange fruiting bodies that we call mushrooms. This exhibit illustrates a selection of the good (edible), the bad (toxic) and the beautiful.
Visit this free exhibit, open to the public, in the BRIT Welcome Center Gallery for a fascinating glimpse at the often overlooked Fifth Kingdom. The exhibit will be open from June 27 to October 1, during regular hours (usually 10 to 4, Monday-Friday).
Location: Botanical Research Institute of Texas, 1700 University Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76107
When: Friday, March 29, 2019 Approx. 7:00 PM (dusk) – 8:30 PM
Location: Sunset Bay on White Rock Lake, 830 Lawther Dr. on the east side of White Rock Lake, Dallas 75218. From Buckner Blvd., take Poppy Dr. (just north of Garland Rd.) toward the lake, then left onto E. Lawther Dr. to Sunset Bay.
Come on out to White Rock Lake and help Barbara Turner with her Amphibian Watch. It’s an amphibian “listen,” since we ID the frogs by their croaks. Barbara sends the data to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for their statewide amphibian monitoring efforts. We will begin at dusk (check your paper for sunset time) and will watch for about an hour and a half.
Barbara will be “watching” frogs each last Friday from March through October. Come out and join the fun! (And come early if you’d like to bird watch for a few minutes.) For information, contact Barbara Turner, 972-222-7321.
