October 29: Port Alberni Edible Mushroom Walk

A message from Hardy Fink & Cynthia Bonesky:

We will host the mushroom walk just west of Port Alberni at Sproat Lake on Saturday, October 29. We will meet at our house at 10 am and then take a motor boat ride across the lake to place called Fossil Park. The trail is quite easy but for some good mushroom hunting, going off-trail would be best. So dress accordingly. It might also be wet or cold as we cross the lake — or alternatively, it might be a beautiful day (as if). But the trip is definitely not for those with mobility problems in part because of having to climb in and out of the boat at the Fossil Park beach. Bring a pocket knife and a cloth or plastic shopping bag. We should be back from the mushroom walk by around 1pm and then serve coffee, tea, snacks, etc.

We look forward to hosting or participating in a MENSA event for the very first time.
