Mushroom Hike @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Jan 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Enjoy some fungi fun with local expert, George Riner. Fungi are masters of opportunity. Even after a fire, the spores are in the air and find an environment where the local fungal species – i.e. competition – have been greatly reduced. These may show themselves in ways you may not imagine.

Be prepared for two miles of leisurely walking and chatting over moderate and possibly muddy terrain. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for minors. Meet outside the Visitor Center ten minutes prior to the event start time. Please wear appropriate clothing and bring a reusable drink container so your little ones can enjoy hot cocoa after the walk. Heavy rains cancel; parking fees apply.

Senderos: ¡Hongos! @ Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
Feb 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Domingo 13 de febrero, 10am-12pm
No es una planta, no es un animal … ¡es un hongo! Venga a descubrir el extraño y maravilloso mundo de los hongos en Sugarloaf. Esta es una caminata ligera y charla acerca de la versatilidad de este reino, incluyendo su ciclo de vida, ecología, y usos. Tendremos la oportunidad de aprender como utilizar la aplicación móbil iNaturalist para ayudarnos a identificar especímenes que encontremos, así que cerciórese de que la batería de su dispositivo esté cargada. 

La ruta final será determinada ese día basado en el clima y las condiciones de los senderos. Nos reuniremos afuera del centro de visitantes. El costo del evento es $5 para adultos y gratis para menores de 18. Por favor regístrese por adelantado. El estacionamiento, usualmente $10, es gratis.

Por favor vista capas, calzado adecuado para senderos lodozos/resbaladizos, protección solar, traiga al menos un litro de agua, y si desea, un bocadillo. Le sugerimos traer un espejo de bolsillo para observar la superficie debajo del sombrero del hongo, algo en que arrodillarse, y una guía de identificación de hongos, si la tiene. También le invitamos a traer una taza para que sus pequeños disfruten de chocolate caliente después de la caminata. 

Las lluvias fuertes cancelan el evento. Seguiremos las medidas apropiadas en acuerdo con órdenes del Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado. Si tiene preguntas, necesita transportación dentro del Valle de Sonoma, o busca más información, mande un correo electrónico a Alma o Arsel (senderos@sonomaecologycenter.org) o llame al (707) 833-5712.
