Mushroom Identification Walk
September 17, 2022
9:30 am - 10:30 am
Join Bob & Sue Pinnette for a guided walk exploring the fungi of Crystal Spring Farm. This walk will take place during peak mushroom season, and will emphasize basic mushroom identification skills and may include edible species.
Bob was born in Fort Kent, Maine and studied botany and mycology at Iowa State University. In the 1980’s he returned to his Aroostook County roots serving as a biology professor at The University of Maine at Presque Isle for 33 years. His research focused on the diversity of fungi in northern Maine. Currently, Bob is performing a plant survey of the Blueberry Barrens for the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust.
Bob and Sue retired to Brunswick seven years ago. Sue is BTLT Stewardship Committee member with training is in horticulture. Since moving to the Midcoast she has developed a special interest in the region’s native plants.
The walk should take 1hr. We suggest wearing sturdy shoes and bringing water, sunscreen and a hat. Park along Pleasant Hill Road where the Pleasant Hill Trail begins. See map here.
This event is free but registration is required!
