Workshop Details: During the workshop you’ll be walking & exploring the Preserve. Please come prepared for a moderate hike with some steep sections (approx 2-4 miles). We will spread out at some points, but mostly stay together in a group. We encourage a sense of sharing on this event, so if you find an especially abundant patch of mushrooms please plan on sharing them with others.
When and Where: We will meet at 10am at the Bohemia Ecological Preserve. The Preserve is located at 6773 Bohemian Hwy, just past Westminster Woods. From the intersection of Graton Road and Bohemian Highway in Occidental, travel approximately 3 miles north on Bohemian Highway. The Preserve is on the right-hand side (if you are coming from Occidental) & looks like a quarry. Watch for staff or volunteers located at Bohemian Highway to direct you to parking!
What to bring: Sturdy boots or shoes, weather appropriate clothes in layers, snacks & water, notebook & pen if you wish, your favorite mushroom guides, a basket & knife, magnifying lens, & camera. There is some poison oak on the property – bring technu if you have it.
You will be asked to sign a liability waiver.
There is one porta-potty on the property
There is no potable water available on the property.
No pets or smoking are permitted and absolutely no smoking pets!
We will stay together as a group & leave together. Early departures cannot be accommodated except in case of medical emergency.
