Please register to attend our popular annual fall mushroom walk, to be held this year at Halle Ravine on Sept. 24 from 2pm to 4pm. Participants can expect to find edible Oyster mushrooms, as shown in our feature photo, and the medicinal reishi mushroom, also known as hemlock varnish shelf. There is one as big as a dinner plate in this protected sanctuary for wildlife. Collection and foraging are prohibited in PRLC nature preserves, but we do allow for picking during guided tours such as this one.
Parking is limited at the Preserve entrance at 244 Trinity Pass Road. Enjoy the marked trails at Halle Ravine any day of the year, dawn to dusk.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to join us for a fall planting session in the reforestation area at Carolin’s Grove. We plan to meet at 10am in the parking lot on Stone Hill Road, just west of the Pound Ridge Library, and to work until noon. Please bring a shovel if you have one. We will have some to share. Participants will spread seed or plant wildflowers and saplings grown in our native nursery at the Armstrong Preserve, and can learn how to choose and grow native plants for their own properties.
PRLC’s Land Steward and Educator, Krista Munger, will be on-hand to guide planters and to answer questions. If you can’t make the work session but would like to help with native plant restoration in Pound Ridge, contact Krista at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 914-205-3533. Many thanks to our volunteers who planted this Spring – the results are outstanding!
