Marty Augustine of the Prairie State Mushroom Club will lead participants on a search for fungus at Wickiup Hill. Meet at the Wickiup Hill Learning Center parking area and be ready to car pool to the Wickiup Hill Natural Area as a starting point. Of course at this time of year, many 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 – who knows, maybe someone will even share their favorite spots.
8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Bring a container to collect mushrooms and dress for conditions that may include ticks, mosquitoes or poison ivy.
Registration not required. $2.50/adult, $1/child 16 and under or $5/family. No charge for Mushroom club members.
