Wild Mushroom Walk
October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Ida Gianopulos for an easy hike through Sitka Wetlands in search of mushrooms.
The Lower Nehalem Community Trust has preserved this wetlands from development, creating instead a wildlife sanctuary. Ida will focus our attention to the variety of fungi in these wetlands, and the role they play in our environment – not just the role they play in the kitchen. Learn basic mushroom identification and how to use a guidebook. This ecology-focused mushroom hike takes place on conserved land, therefore, we are not harvesting mushrooms.
About our speaker: Ida earned her B.S. in Ecology at Humboldt State University, and became involved with land conservation while working as the stewardship assistant for the Lower Nehalem Community Trust. One of Ida’s greatest passions is mycology, and she is an enthusiastic teacher of the wonders of the fungal kingdom.
