Mushrooms for Beginners

Learn all about wild mushrooms and how to identify local species that grow on Prudence Island. This is a great beginner program! Joe Metzen of Audubon, our mushroom guide for the day, will give a presentation on mushrooms, background history, and tips on working with field guides. After lunch, hike in the woods to see what mushrooms can be found. If time allows, participants will also tour Prudence Island by van and discover some of the island's unique historical and cultural sights. Due to limited space, registration is required.

You will be greeted upon arrival to the island by educators from the Narragansett Bay Research Reserve who will transport you for the day in a passenger van.  What to Bring: lunch/drinks for the day, insect repellent, sunblock, and comfortable walking shoes.
