Deer Lakes Park


Dorothy Fornof Walk. Meet Club Identifier and Past President Richard Jacob for a walk in one of the club’s favorite venues and and hidden gem, Deer Lake park . Turn on Mahaffey Rd which goes into the park.  Take the first right into the parking lot between the first two small lakes. This is the meeting location. Shortly after 10 we will then drive in to the park from there taking a right and going past the Disk golf to the West Deer lake parking lot. Here’s a trail map.


Dorothy Fornof (1922 – 2006), a founding member of the WPMC, received the WPMC Special Service Award in 2003 for her dedication as a Club Mycologist, Mushroom Display Chairperson, her expertise in mushroom identification, and willingness to share that vast knowledge with all Club members.

Dorothy led many mushroom walks at Deer Lakes Park and she impressed many as a woman with a profound knowledge of not only the fungi discovered on walks, but also the birds on sighting and by their songs, and practically every plant. She had a keen interest in all nature. When asked about how she could remember all the names and she said it took many years of hard work of learning and remembering. (A special thanks to Valerie Baker for her remembrance of Dorothy)

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.
