A Mushroom Foray

August 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s a great year for mushrooms!

GARNA has organized for a trip to Monarch Park to learn more about these finicky species. Participants will gather as many different kinds of mushrooms as they can find and mushroom expert Monica Griesenbeck will help us identify them.

An avid mushroom gatherer for years, Monica has a wealth of knowledge about mushrooms – how, when and where to find them and what type they are. And, perhaps most importantly, which types are safe to eat.

Additional information such as carpooling will be provided to those who register.

The cost of the program is $5 for GARNA members, $7 for non-members. Online registration is available below via our secure, pay pal site. Please note: you do not need a pay pal account, only a credit card. Fees support coordination and promotion of GARNA programs.

Sorry! This program is full. Please email the office to be placed on the waitlist. GARNA members hear about programs first. Please consider joining. Are you on our mailing list? We announce our programs in our monthly email newsletter, sign up here.
