The Esopus Creek Conservancy and John Burroughs Natural History Society will co-sponsor a guided mushroom walk in the Town of Saugerties. Autumn can be a very productive time of the year for mushrooms if soil moisture is favorable. Professor Bill Bakaitis will guide us as we explore a local woodland in search of ground and wood-dwelling mycelia. Be prepared for potentially wet/muddy conditions and moderate rain.
