Fungus Frolic at Saunders Woods Preserve

Kennett Square's mushroom farms are famous for producing half of the mushrooms consumed in the U.S. each year--but in nature, mushrooms have also been doing well (most likely to the amount of rain we've had this year).

Let's join “Wildman” Steve Brill, for a morning of fungi-focused foraging! We’ll explore Saunders Woods’ tuliptree, oak, and beech woodlands and look out for mushrooms along the way. Steve will also identify greens, nuts, and roots…edibles you can find in your own back yard! In addition to exploring the landscape, we’ll also discuss how to forage responsibly and sustainably.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a water bottle and plastic bags for foraged goodies.

The cost for this event is $20/person. Preregistration is required. To register, please click here.  And, to see the preserve's entrance in relation to the road, click here.
