Nov 5, Sunday: Dulce Hamilton Mushroom Public Walk, Nymph Falls Park
This walk is in memory of Dulce Hamilton, and long-term member of CVN who died last year, and this was one of her favorite walks. Alison and Loys will lead an autumn mushroom walk along the shores of Puntledge River at Nymph falls in this very popular Public walk. Participants will meet at the main entrance of Nymph falls Regional Park on Forbidden Plateau road at 9 am.
The walk is on forest trails, and includes a gentle incline on the way out as you go upstream. Dress for the weather, and wear sturdy shoes. The walk will be about 3 hours long, with many stops to observe the various fungi along the paths.
Note that there is no access to Forbidden Plateau Road form the new highway; you will have to access the road from Piercy Road. This public walk is limited to 40 people.
