Many species of magnificent mushrooms may be growing in your own back yard. Join Tug DeLuce of the Chester County Mycological Association in search of seasonally available wild mushrooms in Mt. Cuba Center's gardens. Learn the identifying characteristics of native fungi and the important roles they play in an ecosystem. This foray focuses on finding edible and medicinal mushrooms, including morels and false morels, using environmental indicators. Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle and snack, and wear sturdy shoes for hiking on moderate slopes.
