Every spring, a rare delicacy pokes through the forest floors of Michigan: the elusive morel mushroom. What makes them appear year after year? How does one go about finding and identifying them? How can we encourage them to spread? Learn to become a successful morel hunter and hit the trails in search of these springtime treats. Participants will each take home a morel-collecting bag and morel recipes to try. Note: Morels will not be collected in the park. Suitable for school-aged children and adults. $5/person. Pre-registration with payment required. Call 248-858-0916 weekdays or Wint Nature Center on Saturdays.
