Mushroom Walk

Saturday, October 14, 2017 (9:00 AM – Noon) 

Join Esopus Creek Conservancy for a guided Mushroom Walk on Saturday, October 14, 2017.  Autumn can be a very productive time of the year for mushrooms if soil moisture is favorable.  Professor Bill Bakaitis, founder of the Mid-Hudson Mycological Association, will guide us as we explore a local woodland in search of ground and wood-dwelling mycelia.

We will 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) From there 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 will cancel the walk. Children are welcome and encouraged, but please do not bring pets.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Steve Chorvas (schorvas@gmail.com) to register, or for additional information or directions. This event is free and open to the public.  Registration will be limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
