Mushroom Walk – Westconnaug Meadows

Saturday, October 14 at 1 PM – Westconnaug Meadows

Saturday, October 21 at 1 PM – Esek Hopkins Park

Thursday, October 26 at 1 PM – Westconnaug Meadows

Deana Thomas from the Rhode Island Mycological Society will be leading us on a series of educational mushroom walks! Learn about the hidden world of fungi from an expert in the field. There are many beautiful fungi of diverse shapes, colors, and lifestyles that live right here in Rhode Island, but it is easy to walk past them unless you know where to look! We’ll learn how to identify mushrooms and about their vital role in our ecosystem – which goes far beyond being food sources or objects of curiosity. Comfortable shoes, bug repellent and water is advised. These will be estimated 1-mile-long, 2-hr walks. Adults and families with children welcome. Registration is required. These events are in collaboration with the Scituate Land Trust as part of Rhode Island Land Trust Days. Thank you so “mush” to them!

Please email leah@scituatelibrary.org or call 401-647-5133 to register.
