Breakheart Reservation in Wakefield Ma.

Some of you may remember going to the Saugus entrance of Breakheart Reservation last season. The parking is limited at that entrance so we are going to have this hunt on the opposite side in Wakefield where the parking is more generous. Previous hunts have been very fruitful and the trails are well marked. The Northeast Vocational School is in this parking lot and next to Wakefield HighSchool. See you there!

    If anyone is interested in going out on an impromptu mushroom hunt this weekend let me know. I live in Gloucester and know of a few areas around here, but I'd be willing to travel if people know of other good places. I can also bring a microscope, slides, and tissue stains out into the field so we could perhaps get a look at the spores and microscope structure of some fungus or plants or whatever else looks interesting. Email me [masked] or reply on here. Cya!

    I'd say quite successful....lots of found varieties.....a few good edibles: chanterelles for the lucky 2 or so and some shared chicken of the woods (do I have that right?)
    A number of amanita varieties....someday I'll find a treasure, but I am enjoying the learning immensely.

    First mushroom meetup, was a really educational experience. Though I started at the wrong end of the reservation, it was easy to spot the mushroom meetup people as they darted in and out of the woods with their full baskets. Thanks to Jean Richard and Jim for organizing it. I was able to take away the names of a few choice edibles I didn't know before, as well as meet some interesting people. Hopefully be on the next one as well.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
