  1. Hello – I would like to join the mushroom walk. Can anyone join or do you have to be a member? Also where is it located in Columbia county? Thanks so much in advance!


    1. Hi, Jane:
      I have not selected a specific location yet. This will be a new walk for the club, so I’m still scouting locations. I look for a variety of tree species, parking at or convenient to the location, mellow terrain, and, of course, mushrooms! While some MHMA walks require prior membership, most do not. This one will be open to the public. After I select a location, I will update this website and post the Event to the MidHudsonMyco Group on Facebook. Barbara

    2. Hi, Jane:

      I have updated the event posting as to the location. The 7/5/2015 walk will take place at New Forge State Forest, West Taghkanic. Hope to see you there.
