Mushroom Hike at Fuller/Pursell Nature Preserve

Sunday, May 2nd
Beginning at 10:00 AM 
Heritage Conservancy’s Fuller/Pursell Nature Preserve
Slifer Valley Road
Springtown, PA

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 collecting and identifying mushrooms. He is a past president and the current Education Chair of the New Jersey Mycological Association and the FunDiS (Fungal Diversity Survey) project leader for the Philadelphia Mycology Club. His fungal passions lay in taxonomy and identifying lesser known (and occasionally unknown) mushroom species, as well as foraging for delicious edible mushrooms.

Luke will lead us through Heritage Conservancy’s Fuller/Pursell Nature Preserve and answer the questions you have always had about the mushrooms you come across locally. Are they poisonous? What value do they provide to us? To our environment? Join us for this unique opportunity!

$15 for Heritage Conservancy members; $20 for non-members. Recommended for ages 12 and up (child must be accompanied by an adult). This event will be limited to 20 guests to ensure the ability to maintain safe physical distancing.

Contact Emily at or 215-345-7020 ext. 107 if you have any questions.
