Description 

Walks With Matt: Mushrooms, Migrations & More! (960-09-08-18)

Saturday, September 8, 10:00 a.m. - noon

Matt Schuth, Naturalist, Author, and Minnesota Landscape Arboretum expert for more than 30 years

 

The advent and duration of the mushroom season are the result of a seemingly mysterious combination of components. Participate in a hunt for the wide and amazing assortment of mushrooms and fungi in the Arboretum’s Bog area and the Green Heron Trail, and learn from Matt’s wealth of wisdom, trivia, and wit through his show-and-tell style. But don’t keep your eyes on the ground too long, as birds also begin their migration at this time, including ducks, sparrows and shorebirds. Whether you find abundance or scarcity, you will gain an appreciation for the fragile life cycle of these important organisms and learn how to respect and preserve their environments. NOTE: As Minnesotans know, Mother Nature can be unpredictable! What may begin as a mushroom hunt may turn into warbler watching…that is the joy and spontaneity of nature, and of these explorations. Be prepared for the weather and a possible change of subject matter based on what Mother Nature has in store for participants during this session. SUGGESTED EQUIPMENT: binoculars, magnifying glass, practical shoes for walking over uneven paths, and dress for the weather.
