Frosty Fungus with Faith Watson

January 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at Cedars House Cafe.

We will explore the hills near Andorra Meadow and learn about the role underground fungi play in helping trees grow and communicate. You will also be introduced to the above-ground fruiting structures: knobs, buttons, shelves, cups, and umbrellas we all know as mushrooms. We will not be touching or eating the fungi, but this will make for a great photography adventure. Wear sturdy boots and be ready for some hidden magic! Level: Moderate. No dogs. Ages: 12+ with an adult.

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired. Unless otherwise noted, children over six are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain or icy conditions. For more information contact Cesali Renn at renn@fow.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
