Mushroom Walking Tour

May 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Book a walking adventure with Rob Macrae, a local lichen and fungi expert, on the lush forest trails of Bear Springs Eco Retreat. On this tour, you will learn how to identify a variety of lichens and mushrooms, where to find them and the environments in which they are most likely to grow.

The walking trail route is easy with some steep terrain. Be prepared to walk 4 to 5 kilometres. Dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. Practise leaving no trace. Be prepared to carry out any garbage you carry in.

Meet in the parking lot at 5248 Queen Victoria Road in Beasley (12 km south west of Nelson, BC) at 1 pm on the day of the tour. Please present a copy of your tour receipt upon arrival.

Participants will receive a beautiful printed lichen and mushroom identification poster as a keepsake.
