The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History will host a mushroom gathering and identification activity in Hebron, CT on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Connie Borodenko, from the Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, will lead the program.
Neither a plant nor an animal, mushrooms and other fungi are curious life forms indeed! They pop up suddenly, often becoming full-grown in a matter of hours.
Discover the startling, colorful, sometimes delicious and sometimes deadly, world of mushrooms and fungi.
Bring a basket and paper bags for gathering during the first hour of the program.
Then, learn about the fascinating world of fungi as we discuss the findings with our mushroom expert.
This hike may be challenging for some, it will include hilly areas.
The program fee is $25 ($20 for museum members). Advance registration is required.
This program is for adults and children ages 8 and older. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History is part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.
