Fungi 101 Talk and Walk

September 16 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join ALT staff and WPMC Identifier Julie Travaglini for a mushroom talk and identification walk at Fern Hollow Nature Center. After a short introductory lecture indoors on fungi, participants will look for mushrooms around Fern Hollow and collect specimens for an ID table.

Hike runs rain or shine, NO WALK INS will be permitted. As this hike is beginner friendly, we will be using the mushrooms common names and looking at distinguishing features to being identifying mushrooms.

We will not be foraging on this hike or discussing edibility. Foraging for mushrooms can be risky and it is never safe to eat a wild mushroom unless an expert confirms the identity.
