Description

Have you ever wondered as you walked by a mushroom, can I eat that? Come join our guide in the 100 acre woods as you explore the fungi kingdom. Using field guides we will explore the fungi and learn about how they provide an interconnected network to provide the forest with nutrients. Learn about what mushrooms you can take home, and the proper way to prepare them. 

We as an organization are adhering to the latest scientific data and safety measures regarding Covid-19 in alignment with the local health department. With all this in mind, we acknowledge the benefits of getting you outside in nature with respect to mental health.
