If you can identify the mushrooms we have illustrated this with, you get a shoutout and a link, if you want. Thanks!
The folks at Pickards Mountain Eco-Institute in Chapel Hill/Orange County are starting in on their fall bounty of educational programs. Next up? Mushrooms! On Saturday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Here’s what they have to say about it:
“Join one of our favorite friends and teachers Gumby Montgomery for a walk in the fall woods and meadows of Pickards Mountain. We’ll learn about the many talents of our fungal friends and how they fit into the forest ecosystem. We will keep an eye out as we walk for some beautiful mushrooms, and enjoy the company of fungi, plants, and animals as they settle into fall.”
RSVP is required for this event! Suggested donation is $15.
And if you’re want to know more about Gumby, who teaches a long list of natural-wonder courses in the area, go here. Gumby also is host of a 16-part “Celestial Seas Astronomy Series” at Pickards. For kicks, read “previous employment” on Gumby’s resume. I guess it’s not surprising that Gumby is, um, flexible.
