Guided mush­room walk planned Oct. 1

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

SAUGER­TIES >> The Eso­pus Creek Con­ser­vancy and John Bur­roughs Nat­u­ral His­tory So­ci­ety, in con­junc­tion with the 13th an­nual Lark in the Park, are co-spon­sor­ing a guided mush­room walk Satur­day, Oct. 1.

Prof. Bill Bakaitis, founder of the Mid-Hud­son My­co­log­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, will guide at­ten­dees as they ex­plore a lo­cal wood­land in search of ground and wood-dwelling mycelia. At­ten­dees should meet at 9 a.m. in the north­east cor­ner of Sauger­ties Plaza near the credit union on U.S. Route 9W, just south of the vil­lage of Sauger­ties. They will car­pool to the site.

At­ten­dees should bring field guides and cam­eras if they have them. Col­lect­ing is not per­mit­ted. Be pre­pared for po­ten­tially wet and muddy con­di­tions, and mod­er­ate rain. Heavy rains will can­cel the walk.

Chil­dren are wel­come, but pets are not al­lowed. To reg­is­ter, email Steve Chor­vas via email at schor­vas@gmail.com.
