The Esopus Creek Conservancy and John Burroughs Natural History Society, in conjunction with the 12th annual Lark in the Park, are co-sponsoring a guided mushroom walk on Saturday, October 03, 2015. Autumn can be a very productive time of the year for mushrooms when soil moisture is favorable. George Johanson will guide us as we explore a local woodland in search of ground and wood-dwelling mycelia.
Meet 9:00 a.m. in the northeast corner of the Saugerties Plaza (near the Credit Union) on Rte. 9W just south of the Village of Saugerties. We will carpool to the location.
Bring field guides and cameras if you have them. Collecting is not permitted. Be prepared for potentially wet/muddy conditions and moderate rain. Heavy rain cancels the walk. Children are welcome and encouraged, but please do not bring pets.
