FUNG-US AMONG-US: MUSHROOM WALK ON THE HARDWICK TRAILS
SATURDAY, JUNE 29 AT 9:00AM @ THE HARDWICK TRAILS KIOSK

Join Arthur Hynes and Joe Nudell for a fungus foray on the Hardwick Trails. We will learn the basics of mushroom ecology by walking through several different mushroom habitats on the trails and collecting a variety of different species -- including potentially some edible ones! At the end of the walk we will go through our findings together and practice identifying mushrooms by examining their distinguishing features.

Arthur and Joe recommend bringing a foraging basket and/or paper bags, a sharp knife and brush, and a field guide, if you have one. You may also wish to bring a camera, the iNaturalist app on your phone, and gloves. (All mushrooms are perfectly safe to handle, but some can be slimy!!)

This free event is sponsored by the Hardwick Trails Committee. The Trails Kiosk is located behind the Hazen Union School parking lot.
