Beginners Mushroom Hike

August 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Beginners Mushroom Hike

Join Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club Identifier and Secretary Julie Travaglini on a beginner-friendly mushroom hike and ID session at Boyce Mayview Park. With a wide variety of habitats within the park, we should be able to find a variety of summer mushrooms. (Hope for rain the week of the walk!) We will focus on general mushroom ecology as well as common names and identifying features, not edibility or foraging. Participants should be prepared for about 2-miles of moderate conditions with some steep and uneven trails. We will spend the first 90 minutes hiking and searching for mushrooms and then set up an ID table to investigate our finds together.

Starting Location: Boyce Mayview Park Parking Lot – 40°20’09.2″N 80°06’19.9″W
