Fungus Among Us
August 15 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM$5
Can I eat this? Join our education team and the Western PA Mushroom Club experts at Devil’s Hollow Conservation Area in search of the myriad of fungus species that can be found. Wear good hiking shoes and bring a camera and your favorite field guide if you have them. Please keep in mind that although we will be collecting specimens for educational purposes we will not be harvesting for food. The pogram runs for 3 hours, rain or shine, and will start with a one-hour ecological focus on fungus with an ALT Environmental Educaiton Team member followed by a all hands-on-deck hunt for species with a WPMC Identifier for an hour and ending with a tabling and identification of all the specimens.
Generous support from PPG enables us to provide this one-of-a-kind environmental education programming.
