** Wild Mushroom Workshop
Sunday, Sept. 22
Learn about wild mushrooms: identification tips, which ones make good edibles, which ones do not and which ones are poisonous. The workshop will be led by Nelson Poirier who will also discuss culinary tips where applicable.

A visit on Falls Brook Centre trails to sleuth out specimens also be included. Please dress for the weather.

Participants are asked to start gathering specimens up to a week in advance to bring to set up “show and tell tables” where specimens can be identified and discussed. Try to gather fresh specimens were possible, place them in brown paper bags, and refrigerate with a large felt marker label “Do Not Eat”. Do not store in plastic bags.

The collections participants bring in will be an important part of the event as we will get to see a much greater variety of specimens this way than an outing to just one habitat.
