Event description

Description

Join Ida Gianopulos for an easy hike through the Sitka Wetlands in search of mushrooms.

The Lower Nehalem Community Trust has preserved this wetlands from development, creating instead a wildlife sanctuary. Ida will focus our attention to the variety of fungi in these wetlands, and the role they play in our environment - not just the role they play in the kitchen. Learn basic mushroom identification and how to use a guidebook. This ecology-focused mushroom hike takes place on conserved land, therefore, we are not harvesting mushrooms.

About our speaker: Ida earned her B.S. in Ecology at Humboldt State University, and became involved with land conservation while working as the stewardship assistant for the Lower Nehalem Community Trust. One of Ida’s greatest passions is mycology, and she is an enthusiastic teacher of the wonders of the fungal kingdom.

This event happens rain or shine!

Location: Meet at the end of Tohl Road in Bayside Gardens, Nehalem (parking available on Tohl
Road)

Suggested Donations, collected onsite: $10 per person over 18, $20 per Family.

We understand everyone learns and experiences the outdoors differently and we are open to working with anyone that needs additional support. We will adjust this hike to meet the needs of participants however, we have limited capacity. Please contact us in advance so that we can do our best to accommodate your needs and/or find a way for you or your group to have fun participating in our events.
