Mushroom Walk Among the Giants

October 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Take in the aw-inspiring sights of the towering beech and sugar maple giants while joining local mushroom enthusiast Inga Hinnerichsen on an educational mushroom walk through LPBLT’s Jackson – Gunn Old Growth Forest. We will be looking at the various types of fungi that can flourish in the undergrowth and learning about
the differences between them.

Inga grew up in Finland where her father, an avid naturalist, taught her the scientific names of plants and mushrooms they saw. It was from that that her fascination for fungi grew.
