Have you ever been interested in learning more about wild mushrooms? Now is your chance! Local environmental group – Oregon Wild offers mushroom hikes with the ever charming Wendell Wood. It is such a treat to go on one of his guided trips. ( he also leads wildflower hikes in the Spring!)
Emphasis will be on mushroom species identification, and not on collecting for the table. Oregon Wild will also provide a printed list of 250+ mushrooms and fleshy fungus found in the Mt. Hood National Forest this time of year.
Additionally, all participants in Oregon Wild’s fall mushroom hikes are invited to attend a free pre-hike, evening slideshow and mushroom workshop. This lecture (with very cool and unusual mushroom examples) will be held on Tuesday night October 23rd from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
You can help Oregon Wild continue to provide high-quality, guided hikes into Oregon’s spectacular wildlands by making a small donation. Your support helps offset the costs of their hikes program, and ensures we can all continue to explore and enjoy Oregon’s natural heritage. Suggested donation of $5 (Oregon Wild members) and $10 (non members).
