This informal, family-friendly mushroom-gathering foray in the Highland Creek Ravine at the University of Toronto Scarborough will provide opportunity for participants to collect and study wild mushrooms and enjoy nature.

 

The walk will begin from the Doris McCarthy Gallery promptly at 11 am and will go forward rain or shine. Participants are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch — light snacks and refreshments will also be provided.

 

Please dress for the weather, wearing good walking shoes and pants you can tuck socks into (for avoiding scratches/insect bites if going off path). It's recommended that you bring a basket in which to collect the mushrooms, and a folding pocket knife to cut them. Additional recommendations can be found on the website of the Mycological Society of Toronto.

 

This program is part of Outdoor School, an ongoing series of artistic and educational activities by Diane Borsato, Amish Morrell and various community collaborators.
