The Ecosystem of Slime. From the deep verbose croaking of our large bullfrogs to the silent serenity of a snail schlepping in the shadows, Lost Lake is full of some of nature's slimiest residents. Join us for a special day while we celebrate the underappreciated amphibians of the state. We will have skimming nets at the ready for those looking to get up close and personal with some of our leopard and bullfrogs as well as a visiting frog from Australia. We'll learn the importance that amphibians play in the ecosystem (as well as the research laboratory) and even take a look at the benefit from our slugs and snails while on trips into our woods! Our youngest naturalists will have the opportunity to put together their own slime so they can continue their research at home!
