Mushroom Meander Scheduled for September

Join us to identify West Virginia’s mushrooms along a short hike through Canaan Valley Resort State Park led by local fungi expert Kristen Wickert on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023.

The 2023 Mushroom Meander will comprise a short, intermediate hike exploring the woods and seeing what sort of fungi are nearby at Canaan Valley Resort State Park lodge.

At last year’s mushroom meander, we barely made it out of the parking lot and found numerous fungi!
Our trip leader, Kristen Wickert, Ph.D., is a professional entomologist, botanist, and plant pathologist who also has a lot of knowledge about fungi. Check out her Instagram @kdubsthehikingscientist!
