Mushroom Walk

Join mycologist Christin Swearingen on a fun mushroom walk in the forest trails of Birch Hill Recreation Area. You can discover more about the jobs mushrooms do in the ecosystem, learn how to recognize certain edible and poisonous species, and be delighted by the tiny details of the fungal world that will change how you view the forest forever!  We will be walking (very) short distances on well-packed trails.

When: August 30, 2023– 6:00-8:00 pm
Where: Birch Hill Recreation Area (meet at the old warming hut)
What to bring: Dress for light rain and mosquito protection
