Mushroom ID

The Berwick Young Naturalists went mushrooming in the Kentville Ravine on a beautiful Saturday morning with Ken Harrison Jr. and Bill Shaw. We had 30 people at this event – our largest group yet! This was a joint event with the Annapolis Valley Chapter. Even though it had been a very dry summer, we did find many mushroom species that kept Ken and Bill hopping. The Young Naturalists were excited to look for mushrooms and the older kids ran up ahead to search with Bill and Nick Hill (local botanist and ecologist) while Ken and I staying back with the younger and more thorough investigators. Here are a few photos from our fun morning: http://nature1st.net/ync/mushroom-id-october-11th/
