Service Description

Field guides for fungi can be overwhelming. This important foundational class is designed to help students at all levels understand families of mushrooms with the help of an expert mushroomer. You will need to bring your own chair for the first portion of class, but we will provide clipboards to write on. You’ll also take an interactive walk utilizing your knowledge of fungi to guess where they might be growing! We highly recommend taking notes in a designated “fungi notebook”. Note: This is not a collection class. Note: you must bring a chair for this class. TERRAIN: As a working U-Pick flower farm, this site is easy to navigate, but it does have some hills. Marshy areas near the stream mean boots are ideal. Extensive teaching gardens here are scattered to display native plants, shrubs and trees that love marshes, hillsides and forests. A uniquely perfect teaching site. PARKING & FACILITIES: Follow the signs for the U-Pick flower farm to the open gravel lot next to an open field. You’ll see a flower stand and chicken eggs at the entrance. Port-a-potty ONLY AVAILABLE July-Oct. WHAT TO BRING: We always recommend dressing for the weather and being prepared to hike a bit outdoors. You should also bring your phone to take pictures with and a notebook if you’d like to take notes. Large parts of this location are unshaded. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring a hat for shade. WHAT ELSE TO KNOW: From July-October the U-Pick is open for business, and they sell their own eggs. Volunteer opportunities to learn about flower farming are available.
