Two fun guys hike! Join Greg Meredith and Alex Parniak, GRCA Resource Interpreters as they lead you on an exploration hike to see what fungi are present in the Rockwood Conservation Area in the fall. They'll discuss identification of mushrooms that are safe to eat (and which aren't) as well as other edible wild treats.
