Mushroom Hike at Sugarloaf @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Dec 18 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Enjoy some fungi fun with local expert, George Riner. Fungi are masters of 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.

Be prepared for two miles of leisurely walking and chatting over moderate and possibly muddy terrain. Tickets are $15 for adults, $7.50 for youth (12-17 year olds), students, Sugarloaf members and Sugarloaf volunteers and free for children under 12. Meet outside the Visitor Center ten minutes prior to the event start time. Please wear appropriate clothing and bring a reusable drink container so your little ones can enjoy hot cocoa after the walk, if desired. Heavy rains cancel; parking fees apply.

Ease of access: we’re unable to determine ease of access as the route will be decided the day-of by the hike leader and other logistics (mud, small water crossings, slippery trails, etc).

Senderos: ¡Hongos! @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Jan 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Sábado 21 de enero, 2023, 10 am-12:00 pm
No es una planta, no es un animal … ¡es un hongo! Venga a descubrir el extraño y maravilloso mundo de los hongos en Sugarloaf. Esta es una caminata ligera y charla acerca de la versatilidad de este reino, incluyendo su ciclo de vida, ecología, y usos. Tendremos la oportunidad de aprender como utilizar la aplicación móbil iNaturalist para ayudarnos a identificar especímenes que encontremos, así que cerciórese de que la batería de su dispositivo esté cargada. 

La ruta final será determinada ese día basado en el clima y las condiciones de los senderos. Nos reuniremos afuera del centro de visitantes. Los boletos cuestan $5 para adultos y son gratis para menores de 18 años. Por favor regístrese por adelantado ya que el espacio es limitado y se llenará pronto. El estacionamiento, usualmente $10, es gratis para este evento. Por favor vista capas, calzado adecuado para senderos lodozos/resbaladizos, protección solar, traiga al menos un litro de agua, y si desea, un bocadillo. Le sugerimos traer un espejo de bolsillo para observar la superficie debajo del sombrero del hongo, algo en que arrodillarse, y una guía de identificación de hongos, si la tiene. También le invitamos a traer una taza para que sus pequeños disfruten de chocolate caliente después de la caminata. 

Para más información, mande un correo electrónico a senderos@sonomaecologycenter.org o llame al 707-247-5767.

Facilidad de accesso: no es posible saber la facilidad de accesso de este programa, ya que la ruta se decirá el día del evento basada en las condiciones de los senderos y abilidad de los participantes.
