MUSHROOM MANIA – A FUNGAL FORAY

November 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10
A fungus found on IslandWood's Bainbridge Island campus.

Come explore for mushrooms along IslandWood trails with local experts.

 

Toadstools, puffballs, chicken of the woods, witches’ butter, stinkhorns, turkey-tail, earthstar, shaggy manes…fungi have such fabulous common names!

 

Join us for a wild mushroom identification walk and see what’s growing in IslandWood’s forest on Bainbridge Island. You’ll learn where to look for different species and gain identification tricks of the trade from seasoned foragers.

 

Mushrooming is a fun and addictive hobby!  Your guides will share information on how you can get involved and stay connected to other enthusiasts and the best resources and tools to learn more.

  • $10 per attendee.
  • Enjoy cookies and hot cider at the Friendship Circle after the hike.
  • This expedition is great for families to learn how to safely discover and identify mushrooms.

 

Health and Safety

Your health and safety, as well as that of our staff, is our first priority. We’ll be limiting the number of guests walking the trails and will be acting in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. We ask that you do the same, and that you bring a mask to wear and maintain social distancing between households to keep you and those around you safe.

 

Accessibility

We work to ensure that all reasonable accommodations are in place so that everyone can fully participate and learn during their time on our campus. All indoor spaces and many of our outdoor spaces and field structures were built and are continually maintained to meet ADA code, adhering to WAC 51-50. Learn more about the physical accessibility of our campus here.

 

Service animals only, please.

 

In proud partnership with our friends at the Kitsap Peninsula Mycological Society and with the generous support of the Fletcher Bay Foundation.
