Before so much was known about mushrooms and about wild species in general, scientists relied on their insatiable curiosity and keen observation skills to get to know the natural world around them.
This is a contemplative nature walk with a specific focus on noticing and documenting the diversity of mushrooms. Part appreciation activity and part nature journaling and citizen science activity.
There will be some repetition between activities to allow for practice and consolidation of learning, however the path will be different and new approaches or activities will be explored. Different trails will be explored.
- a nature walk focusing on mushrooms
- hone our observation skills
- deepen your connection with the natural world
