Mysterious Mushrooms Hike at Sam’s Point Area of Minnewaska State Park

Mushrooms are mysterious organisms that form complex relationships with their surroundings. When the time and conditions are just right, they pop up in new and exciting places! Join Dylan Medici, Student Conservation Association Ecosystem Steward and Education Assistant on a walk through the park as we look for these exciting fungi that never appear in the same place each year. Who knows where we’ll find them? Plan for a moderate hike of no more than 4 miles as we seek out the best mushroom spots. This program is suitable for all ages.
