Blackstone Parks Conservancy

We invite you to join a Mushroom Trail Walk in Blackstone Woods, focused on hunting and identifying fungi speciesElena Riverstone, a member of the BPC and mushroom enthusiast, will lead the walk.

This event is part of a series of free events offered by the Blackstone Parks Conservancy with support from the Partnership for Providence Parks and Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership.

We recommend this program for adults and older children (ages 8-17 years). Please bring insect repellent and wear sturdy shoes and socks.

Join us on Saturday August 16 at 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. in the Blackstone Field (across from the Narragansett Boat Club, 2 River Road, Providence, RI 02906 – between Angell Street and Irving Avenue).  Map coordinates:  41°49’58.8″N 71°22’40.9″W

UPDATE:  The trail walk will go ahead, despite a shortage of mushrooms.  This week’s rain didn’t make up for an otherwise dry season.
