Explore the World of Mushrooms

Sunday, September 28th , 2014 1:00pm

High Falls Conservation Area – 540 Roxbury Road, Philmont, NY

What is a mushroom? Come and explore the world of these interesting organisms: their role in the soil, their role in nutrient recycling, and their relationship with plants. Our guide will be Taro Ietaka, Director of Conservation at the Rye Nature Center and also the President of the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association (COMA).
This will be a family friendly walk. If you bring children, however, please discuss with them the importance of not handling mushrooms unless a professional mycologist has first established that it is safe to do so. We will all be relying on the expertise of our guide, Taro Ietaka.
