Catskill Fungi

Preparing for your Mushroom Exploration:

* Dress appropriately for the weather. We will go out rain or shine.

* Wear sturdy shoes.  It is important to wear appropriate shoes/boots for being in the forest. We do our best to pick trails that can be accessed by people of a wide range of physical abilities. Events at the Catskill Interpretive Center are accessible by wheel chair. 

* There are usually bathrooms or outhouses at trail heads we leave from but not always.

*  Some people bring water and snacks. Baskets for collecting mushrooms and field guides for identification are welcome. Some baskets, collecting bags, and field guides will be provided.

* Cameras. Not necessary but fun and helpful for IDing fungi. Out of respect, I ask permission from people to include them in photos and encourage others to do the same.  

* Some people bring a note book and pen. This is highly encouraged. I always carry this to make notes about what we find and things I learn or to drawn silly pictures of my teacher. 

*  Your Smile.


What not to Bring:

* Dogs. I love them but we have had issues in the past.

* Mushrooms.. Just kidding! If you find some, bring them to the walk and we will do our best to Identify them :-)
