Tom Ridge Environmental Center


Meet Mark Lethaby from the Natural History Museum at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center and Richard Jacob from WPMC for a walk at Presque Isle State Park. As far as we are aware this will be the first fungal foray of Presque Isle State park and there are a number of environments there ranging from beaches and shoreline; sandy plain and ponds; sand dunes and ridges; marshes and old ponds; heath and sub-climax forest; and the climax forest. So some very different environments to Pittsburgh and we should find a number of species of mushrooms new to the club.

Meeting point is the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. As we plan to drive into the park the walk may run over the normal two hours and we recommend bringing a pack lunch. It will take over two hours to drive to Tom Ridge Environmental Center from Pittsburgh but the location is beautify and worth a day trip.

Sometimes the address and location information for a meeting point is not 100% accurate. Some parks and meeting point do not have a street address so it is difficult to program the map to point to the exact location.

We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine. Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if you are late we will already be in the woods.
