On a perfect fall day

“We had a wonderful time learning about mushrooms and exploring the trails on a perfect fall day. Kids had a blast making clay mushrooms. It was great family fun. One mom expressed gratitude to spend time with her teen daughter outside. Despite the drought, we found violet-toothed polypores, a good clump of oysters, and a slime mold!” – Melissa Guillet of 15 Minute Field Trips, on last Sunday’s event “Mysterious Mushrooms”.
