Stimpson Family Nature Reserve. Directions.

Every Friday 9:30-11:00AM.

A majestic forest and wild fairyland, this beautiful place holds many magical discoveries. Interesting mushrooms are everywhere! In fact, without the benefits of the fungus among us, our forests could not exist. The variety of shapes and colors is simply amazing. Come see chunky cubes of rotten stumps, elfin saddles just waiting for a tiny rider, red coral that looks like it should be under the sea, and more. We'll find HUGE trees, lots of leaves, rotting nurse logs and mother stumps, ferns and fungus galore! We usually find lots of interesting mushrooms to see, touch, and smell. But no picking, these mushrooms are only for the forest fairies.

Please bring a simple, healthy snack to share.
