9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Mary Jane Epps, Assistant Biology Professor at Mary Baldwin University and Jefferson Chapter member, to hunt for mushrooms and other fungi and learn about how they interact with plants and animals to shape the ecology of our forests. Fall is the peak mushroom season in our area so there should be lots to discover.
Free; all are welcome.
Co-sponsored by the Ivy Creek Natural Area.
Note this is the second Saturday of the month rather than our usual third Saturday for walks.
Led by VNPS members, our plant walks are usually the third Saturday of each month from March to November. However, check on our Facebook page or emails from the Jefferson chapter to confirm dates and further details for each walk.
The April date may be adjusted this year so that members can participate in the VMI field trip.
These walks are offered jointly with Ivy Creek. 9:00 a.m. at Ivy Creek Natural Area Kiosk located at 1780 Earlysville Rd. The public is welcome to join us!
