Sunday, October 8, 2017
1:00PM – 4:00PM
Join members of the Central New York Mycological Society for this afternoon program on wild mushrooms. Come learn about edible and poisonous mushrooms, as well as those that help trees and hurt trees and those that are decomposers. Guided hikes through Beaver Lake's woodland in search of various species of mushrooms are scheduled for 1:30 and 3:30pm. (Each walk will be limited to 30 participants.) Tables with identified mushrooms will be on display and experts will be available to identify mushrooms brought in. On-going activities include cooking demonstrations, how to grow your own mushrooms, crafting with mushrooms and spore print demonstrations.
