Mushroom Walk (Rain Date for 9/25)
with David Spahr
This course will include walking in the woods of Merrymeeting Bay to find edible mushrooms along with detailed descriptions of habitat and structure. David Spahr has collected edible mushrooms for 46 years and is a member of the Maine Mycological Association and the North American Mycological Association. Every walk bears a different bounty depending on the season, the weather and location. The majority of mushrooms found in nature are often not edible, and learning this element is even more important than knowing which ones you can eat. Please bring a notebook and pen, sensible clothing and footwear, water, snack and bug repellant. A basket or bags are optional. Children 8 to 15 are allowed to register only with a parent who is also registered. These hikes can be moderate in difficulty. Covid 19 safety protocols will follow state and school district recommendations for in-person events. No discounts.
