Iowa Mushroom Group to Host Mushroom Foray at Starr’s Cave Park and Preserve

 

Join the Prairie States Mushroom Club and Des Moines County Conservation staff for a mushroom foray at Starr’s Cave Park and Preserve Saturday, August 13th beginning at 10am. We will spend a couple of hours in the woods searching for fungus. At around Noon, the group will gather at the shelter house to compile a list and discuss what they found. A basket or other container to collect mushrooms in would be helpful. Participants may wish to bring a lunch.

 

Foray participants will meet at the shelter house. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the hike and come prepared for all outdoor woodland off trail conditions. The hike will be held rain or shine. A bottle of water, bug spray, and a camera may be desirable.

 

The Mushroom Foray will be held at the Starr’s Cave Park and Preserve on Saturday, August 13th, from 10am to 12pm. Registration is required for this event. If you are interested in attending this event please register by calling the Starr’s Cave Nature Center at (319) 753-5808.
