Nature Workshop - "The Mysterious World of Fungi"
Location: Frank Stanley Beveridge Wildlife Sanctuary
This workshop is led by Dianna Smith and the Pioneer Valley Mycological Society. Fungi are all around you, but often you do not even realize it. They play many important ecological roles, including decay of organic material and nutrient recycling and exchange. Come and learn about different groups of fungi and the fundamentals of identifying them by their fruiting bodies, the mushrooms. Part of the fun of looking for wild mushrooms is that you never know what may be popping up! We will walk along some of the park's trails to see what we can discover..
The workshop will meet at the main entrance sign to the Frank Stanley Beveridge Wildlife Sanctuary located across from the recreation field. Wear spring hiking attire and sturdy boots. Bring water, your field guide, binoculars and camera if you wish. Workshop will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain.
