Mushroom Hike @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Enjoy some fungi fun with local expert, George Riner. Fungi are masters at opportunity. Even after a fire, the spores are in the air and find an environment where the local fungal species – i.e. competition – have been greatly reduced. These may show themselves in ways you may not imagine.

This hike is limited to 40 guests. Be prepared for 2 miles of walking over moderate terrain. Meet at the Visitor Center. $10 per person, parking fees apply.
