Wet summer yielded mushrooms

-A A +A

With all the rain lately, crops of mushrooms have popped up all around.
The public is invited to join Pajarito Environmental Education Center and members of the New Mexico Mycological Society for a free mushroom walk, 9:30 a.m. Sunday at Pajarito Ski Hill.
Four experts from the Mycological Society will be on hand to identify and interpret the different mushrooms growing after the wet summer.
The program will begin with some introductory comments from the NMMS experts, and then the participants will be divided equally into groups, each with one NMMS leader.
Each group will depart to a predetermined location largely within walking distance, where they will foray for about an hour.
Following that, all groups will return to the parking lot for identifications and discussions, lasting roughly an hour.
Finally, the NMMS experts will be available to answer any one-on-one questions. The activity should wrap up around 12:30 p.m.
There will be an informal picnic afterward for those who wish to bring a lunch. Participants should meet 9:30 a.m. at PEEC to carpool to the Pajarito Ski Area.
