Wagon House Education Center at Olana Historic Site
5720 Route 9G, Hudson, New York 12534
Educational only – no pick.
Join the Mid-Hudson Mycological Association on a mushroom walk at Olana. We will start with a brief introduction to foraging, including the ecology of forest mushrooms, safety in the woods, how to identify mushrooms and some tips for cooking wild mushrooms. Jill Weiss, the club’s Walks Coordinator, will be leading the walk along with several club experts. Anyone joining us should bring bug repellant, water to drink and a camera since Olana prohibits harvesting anything in their woods. MHMA suggests you wear long pants that can be tucked into your socks to keep the ticks out and hiking boots. Please pre-register by Friday, May 30 firstname.lastname@example.org or 518.828.1872 x 109.
