Special Mushroom Hike, Saturday at 2PM

On Saturday, October 25, we’ll hike the glen with mushroom expert Sam Landes from 2:00-4:30 pm, meeting at Jimmy’s Bar (located at 2801 W. Farmington Road in Peoria) and carpooling from there.

Sam visited Rocky Glen during our all-day celebration at Jimmy’s last July. On that hike he found dozens of mushroom species. We learned he was coming back to Peoria to do a Sunday program at Forest Park Nature Center. We knew then we wanted the opportunity to hike the glen with him and explore yet another aspect of its amazing biodiversity.Oyster-Mushrooms

This hike will go up the steep trail to the top of the bluff and visit the moss-covered outcrops and hill prairies above the glen. It will be a moderately strenuous off-trail hike of 3 miles or more. Long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended.
