The natural history of mushrooms and their role in ecosystems will be the focus of this day’s outing. We will search for and discover the world of fungus with discoveries at every turn throughout the 60-acre Gilsland Farm property, discussing every fungus we encounter. An optional mushroom slide show will be presented during lunch (please bring food if you plan on staying). Our presenter is Kirk Gentalen, who has lived and worked as a naturalist in 14 states and who currently is a regional steward and naturalist for the Maine Coast Heritage Trust on Vinalhaven Island. The cost to attend is $25 for Maine Audubon members, $35 for non-members.
