Calling all mushroom enthusiasts! Join us for one or multiple mushroom foray walks with mycologist Aaron Keaton. After a rainy summer season, wild mushrooms are thriving at Slocums River Reserve!
Depending on weather, there will be different types of mushrooms to explore. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring a water bottle, tick and bug repellent, and an ID field guide (if you have one).
This walk is ideal for beginners, but experienced foragers are also welcome!
