Join expert David Paton for an exciting exploration of mushrooms! David first became interested in wild mushrooms in the 1970s and has since developed an extensive knowledge of the amazing world of fungi. On this adventure, you will learn mushroom identification and ecology and be introduced to the edible, poisonous, medicinal, and just plain beautiful members of the fungal kingdom. Be prepared for leisurely walking on uneven terrain, and bring bug spray if you wish.
Please Note: This walk will take place at our wildlife sanctuary and will not involve collecting mushrooms.
