Not only is the fall a wonderful time to take in the foliage and crisp air, but it is also when many mushrooms come into season. Trees and mushrooms have an intricate relationship, and together they create the foundation for a healthy forest. Join us in learning a bit about modern mycology, 19th-century forest management, and finally tree and mushroom identification techniques.
