Mushroom Walk II with Dave Paton

August 11, 2019

If you missed the July mushroom walk or just want to explore again in August, this is for you! 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.

  • All ages are welcome
  • $10 Adults, $5 Children under 12
  • Pre-registration is appreciated

For questions and to pre-register, leave a message (with your name, contact info, and number of people in your party) for Eileen at or 860-364-0520 x120.
