Fall Mushroom Hike with Heritage Conservancy and Luke Smithson
October 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Sunday, October 24th
Beginning at 10:00 AM
Do you ever wonder about which mushrooms you can eat? Join Heritage Conservancy and Jamie Hollander Catering & Events head chef, Luke Smithson, on a hike to identify wild edibles.
Luke is an amateur field mycologist and citizen scientist with over 25 years of experience collecting and identifying mushrooms. He is the past President and current Education Chair of the New Jersey Mycological Association, and he is the FunDiS (Fungal Diversity Survey) project leader for the Philadelphia Mycological Club. His fungal passions lay in taxonomy and in identifying lesser known (and occasionally unknown) mushroom species, as well as in foraging for delicious edible mushrooms.
Luke will lead us through a privately owned preserve, and answer the questions you have always had about the mushrooms that you come across locally. Are they poisonous? What value do they provide to us and to our environment? Join us for this unique opportunity!
