  • Saturday, September 14 at 10:00 amAn introduction to Fungi and Wild Mushrooms, this educational walk will be led by Bill Yule, an environmental educator who has lectured and lead walks about fungi all over the Eastern US. He also has been a member of the CT Mycological Society for 26 years.
    Participants are encouraged to bring wild mushrooms to be identified at the start of our walk. There will be a short discussion about the ecology of fungi and what we will be looking for on the hike. We will then return to our start point to discuss what we have collected and have a lunch break.
