Garrett Taylor, mushroom enthusiast, will lead the group on a hike through the woods of the Lillibridge Preserve to share interesting tidbits about many different species of fungus.

Mushrooms are a variety of fungi that produce a fleshy fruiting body. When most of us think of a mushroom, we picture a white, umbrella-shaped cap that rests precariously on a thick, grey stalk, but mushrooms come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. Not only are they beautiful to observe, they play a fundamental role for life on earth.
