Sawwabi Outing September 30-cancelled

NATIVE PLANT SOCIETY FALL COLOR AND MUSHROOM HUNT AT GOODENOUGH CANYON CAMPGROUND, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER  30, 2017

 

On Saturday, September 30, the Sawabi Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society invites you and your friends on a guided Fall Color and Mushroom Hunt in Goodenough Canyon Campground, near McCammon.  The final field trip of our season is traditionally to Goodenough Canyon with a potluck following the plant walk.

 

Trip Description: This year our leader will be Brad Willis, who has previously conducted  mushroom hunts for our group in the spring.  Brad says that this canyon is an auspicious spot for fall-fruiting mushrooms.  He will lead the group up one fork of the canyon where the streamside trail and shady slopes make for good fungus habitat.  The pace will be slow in order to identify plants and mushrooms.  The trail is easy-to-medium difficulty, so wear good walking shoes.  Be prepared for inclement weather.

 

Potluck:  Following the walk, all are invited to enjoy a potluck lunch at the big picnic area in the middle of the campground.  Sawabi will provide paper plates and utensils and asks that you bring a dish to share with all, as well as your beverage of choice.

 

To Carpool and Caravan: Meet to leave at 10:00 am from the Bison Sculpture in the big parking lot (5th and Dillon), lower campus of Idaho State University.

Or meet everyone at the Site, the large parking and picnic area in the middle of Goodenough Canyon Campground, at 10:30 am.
