Uncover the world of mushrooms

Prompted by autumn rains, mushrooms seem to pop up overnight in gardens, fields and forests. Learn more about the marvelous wild mushrooms of Pennsylvania from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, at PPL’s Montour Environmental Preserve.

Bill Russell, author of “Field Guide to Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic,” will help unravel the often confusing world of mushroom identification. The program will begin indoors with a slide show about wild mushrooms of Pennsylvania. Then we’ll head outside to look at mushrooms.

This free program will be held in the Environmental Education Center. For more information, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.
