Mushroom Walk: The natural history of mushrooms and their role in ecosystems will be the focus of this day’s outing, but every species is different so “you can never tell what’s going to come up on a fungus walk”. “Having a group look for, find and really discover the world of fungus is a unique setting for a walk – and there can be discoveries at every turn”.

For our day we’ll walking the trails surrounding the CCLC, discussing every fungus we pass by. A mushroom slide show will follow. See you there.

Instructor: Kirk Gentalen has lived and worked as a naturalist in 14 states leading Environmental Education and Ecotourism programs for kids of all ages. Currently he is as a regional steward and naturalist for the Maine Coast Heritage Coast out on Vinalhaven Island, and has led hikes for MCHT up and down the coast for the last four years.
