Fungus Among Us

August 17 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Ever wonder what that mushroom is you see growing on a log? Join our education team and the Western PA Mushroom Club experts as we hike the Catfish Pond entrance at Dead Man’s Hollow 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 program runs for 3 hours, rain or shine, and will start with a one-hour ecological focus on fungus with an ALT Environmental Education Team member followed by a all hands-on-deck hunt for species with WPMC Identifier Jared White for an hour ending with a tabling and identification of all the specimens.
