fungus-by-pam.jpg Join in on the fungus Saturday, October 11, at 10 a.m., as the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum explains all about mushrooms, lichens, toadstools and fairy rings. This time of year is the perfect time to find beautiful examples of colorful fructifications of the fascinating mushroom group. Come to the Museum’s, Outdoor Discovery Center location, 20 Kenridge Farm Drive, Route 9W, Cornwall, to identify some common fungus among us with Education Coordinator, Judy Onufer. Take a walk in the woods and trails in search of these beauties, and then make a spore print craft to take home. Fungi in the woodlands and fields are an important part of the ecosystem, playing a vital role in recycling nutrients.  This program is suggested for adults and children ages 5 and up. Registration is requested. The cost is $5. Members are $3. For more information, call (845) 534-5506, ext 204.
