Nature's Bounty Series: Fall Mushroom Foray

pre-registration required
September 26, 9:30 AM11:30 AM

Mushroom hunting is a wonderful way to get outdoors, exercise, and learn. This class is intended as a general introduction for beginning mushroom hunters and is not a comprehensive training. We will spend a portion of the class learning the basics of mushrooms using real-life examples of common and safe edible fall mushrooms. Afterwards, bring your basket as we head off-trail into the woods for a fungal foray. Discover where these mushrooms grow, examine their characteristics, and possibly collect some samples to bring home*.

Class is limited to 12 participants. Rain date 9/27, 9:30-11:30 am

*By city ordinance, mushroom collecting is not allowed on Rochester City Parks outside of this event.
