The lush forests of this Novato preserve are an ideal place to see a variety of mushrooms. We’ll talk about their identification and the important role that fungi play in the ecosystem. Our route will include one sustained steep section, but we will take this part very slowly. This walk is for adults. We request that no animals (except service animals) attend. Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the morning of the walk for a recorded message to see if the walk is cancelled. David Herlocker will lead. Questions: Contact David at (415) 893-9508 or DHerlocker@marincounty.org. Meet at the College of Marin Indian Valley Campus in Novato, parking lot #6 (1800 Ignacio Blvd). DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in Novato, take the Ignacio Blvd/Bel Marin Keys Blvd exit west on Ignacio Blvd approximately 2.5 miles all the way through campus. Parking lot #6 is adjacent to the police station.
