Ce que vous allez faire
We will meet at the entrance to the St Augustine Amphitheatre at the bicycle parking area. From there we will hike a lesser known trail stopping along the way to discuss the plant and mushroom beings we meet along the encounter. We will talk of their identity, edibility, medicinal and historical uses. You will have to endure my bad puns along the way! This is a representative coastal hardwood hammock botanically rich trail that also has an herbaceous marsh and dune areas. If we encounter any mushrooms, we can discuss what we find and their potential uses too. I hope to have some fun with you if you join me on this adventure!
Hey there, if you are into plants, mushrooms, sustainable food forests, permaculture or ecology of Fl, I think you'd get a lot of joining me! I have a masters degree from UF in Ecological Engineering where I got my feet wet studying wetlands. I worked a 7 year period throughout the state of FL as a botanist for the FWC, and have been doing organic restoration and establishment of food forest on my Finca Mycol where I founded the Fl Earthskills Gathering. I've taught ethnobotany and mycology now since 2003...but most of all, I'm a "funguy"!
Ce qui est inclus
Bring a notebook, any guidebook, and a loop if you happen to have one.
This trail is an intact coastal hardwood hammock that has draping spanish moss over predominant live oak trees (Quercus virginiana). There is a surprisingly rich understory of herbaceous and shrubby plants to engage in. I've also encountered a decent amount of edible and medicinal mushrooms in these woods. This trail area has old dunes so there are some minor ups and downs but is well maintained. The herbaceous marsh area is quite interesting
