Saturday, October 3rd, 9AM: Mushroom Walk and Exploration in Paradise Park
Mushrooms are fascinating with a long and fascinating history of uses as food, psychedelics, poisons and medicines.  Some mushrooms are deliciously edible. Some have proven medicinal qualities. Some are deadly. Come for a socially-distanced mushroom walk with local resident and retired science teacher Mike Quinn. Learn about different types of mushrooms found in Vermont, their characteristics, and how they fit into Vermont's natural landscape. We'll meet at the County Road entrance to Paradise Park in Windsor. Participants must wear a mask. Please call the library beforehand at 674-2556 to let us know you'll be there. Rain or shine.
