Mushroom Field Trip
Oct 14 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Gary Hunt is leading a mushroom field trip at the Scuitto Lake Forest Service Road wetland area.

Meet at 9:30 am at the corner of Oriole Road and Glenwood Drive behind Valleyview Secondary School for carpooling.

The main focus of this trip will be the biology, ecology, and identification of mushrooms, not edibility. This is not intended as a trip to collect edibles.  The walk should last about 2 hours but you may want to bring a lunch or a snack and some water.  As always, dress for the weather, although the current forecast for Sunday is sunny, it may be cool in the morning.

There is no need to register in advance.  Everyone will be asked to sign an attendance form.  Non-club members will also be asked to sign a day trip waiver form and pay $1.

When carpooling, at trip-end, please offer the driver compensation for gas and wear and tear on the vehicle.  Consider offering what you feel would be fair if you had been driving that vehicle and would be receiving the compensation.
