This is a great chance to enter the endlessly intriguing world of mushroom foraging.  Join us for three 2-hour guided forays during the Champlain Valley’s summer mushroom season to learn about the distinctive and delicious species fruiting locally.

The guided mushroom forays will start at 9:30 a.m. and take place on:

• Saturday, July 19th
• Tuesday, August 26th
• Sunday, September 14th

To participate, we request a $100 donation per adult to register for the full series of hikes. While participation in all three forays is encouraged, individual sessions are transferable if you are unable to attend.
