DESCRIPTION

Join the Rochester Area Mycological Association at the Wesley Hill Nature Preserve for a guided walk to celebrate National Mushroom Month! We’ll seek out elusive members of Kingdom Fungi and discuss their diverse ecological roles and how they can help (or hinder) our conservation efforts. Wesley Hill is host to white pine, hemlock, and oak habitats including some old growth that we’ll explore in search of Fantastical Fungi.
