Mushroom Walk - Catskill Forest Association
2 Hours Foraging Fungi in the Forest
Catskill Forest Association
Join us for an exciting morning walk into the world of mushrooms! Learn about the ecological functions of fungi, common edibles and medicinal mushrooms, as well as historic uses of fungi and present-day innovations of these exceptional life forms. We’ll learn some basic keys to mushroom identification as we examine specimens found on our trail.
Please dress for the weather. We will walk rain or shine, unless a severe storm is predicted. This means boots or sneakers. Optional items to bring include a water bottle, bug/tick repellent, rain coat, or snacks. You are welcome to bring pictures of mushrooms you would like identified.
