Event Type

Last fall’s Mushroom Forage was a huge success, so this year we’re holding a joint event with Boston Mycological Club!

Location: Trailhead to Nara Park at the end of Nagog Park Rd. There is a good sized parking lot on the right just before the dead end circle.

The Boston Mycological Club is the oldest amateur mycology club in the USA, founded in 1895. Our walk will will take us through the Will’s Hole and Town Forest conservation area in North Acton. We will not be eating any of our foraged finds, just identifying them with the help of several fungi experts from BMC.

All ages are welcome but no pets (except service animals) are allowed. No experience is necessary, just a keen set of eyes and your curiosity. Bring a basket or paper bag with handles for collecting mushrooms. Refreshments will be provided after our walk.

Please register here. 

More information will be sent a few days before the event. This event will be held rain or shine as rain is great for mushrooms! Lightning will cancel the walk.If you have questions, please contact Jody Harris at
