On Sunday, November 13th I will be leading a great event — “Fall Flora & Fungi Hike at McConnells Mill State Park” — and, I’d love for you to join us!
Autumn is the perfect time to explore the backcountry in Western Pennsylvania in search of interesting and useful plants, trees, and mushrooms. McConnells Mill State Park, with its deeply-cut gorges, hemlock-lined ravines, whitewater currents, and historical landmarks is a prime area for autumn exploration.
During this event, we will hike a 2-mile loop around the park while discussing various subjects related to Pennsylvania’s flora and fungi, including:
- edible and medicinal plants
- edible and medicinal mushrooms
- tree identification, along with edible and medicinal uses
- medicine-making using wild plants and mushrooms
- natural history of the area
… and more!
The program will entail moderate hiking (the terrain includes some rocks and hills), and the event will take place rain or shine. Please note that in order to maximize your learning experience, space is limited and registration with payment in advance is required to secure your spot. The exact event location will be provided upon registration.
