About the Event

The Boston Mycological Club (BMC) will conduct a hunt for fungi in the woods at Daniels Farmstead, 286 Mendon Street, Blackstone, MA on September 12th at 10:30 am. This event includes collecting specimens for 1.5 hours and then returning to the tables at the Farmhouse to display finds and talk about them.  All ages are welcome.  Persons interested in attending should be prepared for walking in the woods including closed-toed shoes and long pants (familiarize yourself with ticks and poison ivy).   If possible, also bring the following items: a sharp knife for cutting specimens off of dead logs and a butter knife or spoon for digging up fungi growing in soil, a basket or paper bag for carrying specimens in, small paper lunch bags, tin foil, or wax paper for wrapping individual specimens in, and a magnifying glass or better a jewler’s loupe.  But really the most important thing to bring is curiosity!  Experienced members of the BMC will be there to lead you and help identify the specimens you collect.  Persons interested in more information about fungi and joining the BMC may visit www.bostonmycologicalclub.org   When returning to tables please wear a mask for close proximity to others.
