I’m stuck on Clue 3. I’ve tried “abiotic” and “acidic”, neither of which leads me to the clue.
I have put in the code for #4 and it says I have redeemed it. However, it is not showing up as such and I cannot move on to the last clue.
Hmm, I'm wondering if maybe you found a code for another badge (it happens ALL THE TIME! Our catalog, as it turns out, is FULL of codes!)
Did you search for b*****?
Yep, that’s what happened. Thanks!
#5 HAS TO be [redacted]! But apparently it isn't - help!
It is! (Which is why I redacted your answer). Be sure you aren't searching with quotes around your answer, and remember it's not always found in the first item the search returns. It is within the first ten items, though! Give it another go!
I really neeed help for number 5
Take a close look at the section labeled "Gastronomical Value and Culinary Uses" on this wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morchella
Make sure you're searching for both words (and plural), and don't search with quotes around your answer. Remember it's not always found in the first item the search returns. It is within the first ten items, though!
I got it
I'm stuck on #6. I looked up the animal in the catalog (plural) but, I didn't see the code. Help!
Did you use its two-word name (G.B.), no quotes around it? That should get you there. Double check you didn't try to SNEAK an "e" into the first word of its name; that's a common way it's misspelled! Your code is within the first ten results.
nevermind, I got it!
Love the inclusion of one of my favorite bands for one of the searches :)))
I need help with code 3 I found A***** soil but I couldn’t get the code
You are SO close! You want to search the adjective form of that word (A****ine) and leave out the word soil.
I need help with code 4
You'll find the answer you're looking for in this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morchella
Look all the way under the "Gastronomical value and culinary uses" section for one of the simplest ways to prepare these mushrooms! (There are also some PUNNY hints in all-caps in the clue).
Thanks I got the code
I need help with code 5
Never mind i got the code
I have entered the scientific name for the Morel mushroom found in this article (https://www.gardeningchannel.com/list-of-mushroom-types-from-a-to-z/) as well as repeated in other articles. I get two hits in the AADL catalog results and neither have a code. This is for #1. The scientific name started with an M and had 9 letters.
Hi there! You're SO CLOSE! That 9-letter word *IS* your code, so instead of searching for it in the catalog, you simply enter it in as a found code. Thanks for playing!
Thank you. I missed that part. Thank you for your help.
