Mushroom Identification Walk at Minnewaska State Park Preserve
September 20, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Join Jill Weiss, trip leader for the Mid-Hudson Mycological Society, and Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for an educational, non-foraging, mushroom walk along the Beacon Hill Carriage Road. This introduction to mushrooms will teach participants how to identify some of the more common mushrooms found at Minnewaska and as a bonus, participants will get a stunning view from the end of the carriage road.
Notes: Walking takes place on the Beacon Hill Carriage Road, which is a wide trail with a stone surface. There are a few inclines and declines, but the surface is relatively level and easy to walk on.
Registration: Call or email by 9/20
Length: 1.5 miles
Duration: 2.5 hours
Not suitable for children under 10. Hiking boots or other sturdy walking shoes are recommended.
