Mushroom Ramble

Wickiup Hill Learning Center, Linn County

Saturday, May 1, 2021

Marty Augustine of the Prairie State Mushroom Club will lead participants on a search for fungus at Wickiup Hill on this morning. Meet at the Wickiup Hill Learning Center.  We may have a program on mushroom identification initially.  Then we will head to the woods to see what we can find.  Of course at this time of year many folk’s thoughts will be on the tasty morel mushrooms – though we will see many other kinds of fungi as well. We will learn a bit more about local mushrooms and what was located at the end of the program – who knows, maybe someone will even share their favorite spots? Bring a container to collect mushrooms and dress for conditions that may include rolling forested terrain, ticks, mosquitoes or poison ivy. Not particularly kid friendly due to these obstacles. This event is free, but registration is required to keep the size of group small.
