Our next Explorer Day will be a mushroom walk on Saturday, October 22nd from 10:00-12:00 at the William’s Beach Forest. This forest has a mix of mostly pine and Douglas-fir and it is a great place for fungi in the fall!
Please dress for the weather, and there may be some mud and puddles so gumboots or hiking boots would be best. Bring a snack and water bottle. Note that in the event of extreme weather (heavy rain, strong winds etc) we will cancel. If we cancel we will send an email out to members on the morning of the event.
Directions: Drive north on the old island Hwy. Turn right on William’s Beach Rd (the next right after the Merville Store). Follow William’s Beach Rd for quite a ways, continue past Larkin Road and Halstead Farm. The road straightens out before coming to a sharp bend, and right at the corner is the main parking area for the forest. There is no signage as it is not officially a park.
We look forward to seeing you on the 22nd!
