Mushroom Walk Among the Giants
October 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Take in the aw-inspiring sights of the towering beech and sugar maple giants at the Jackson – Gunn Old Growth Forest. Join local mushroom enthusiast Inga Hinnerichsen on an educational walk to observe the various types of fungi that can flourish in the undergrowth and learn about their unique features.
Inga grew up in Finland where her father, an avid naturalist, taught her the scientific names of plants and mushrooms. It was from that that her fascination for fungi grew. Inga will share a collection of mushroom specimens and highlight a few common categories of fungi.
