Mycology 4 Kids! is hands-on learning with interactive presentations, experimental labs, and outdoor adventures. This class of 20 will be embarking on the journey of foraging safety, species identification, mycology, outdoor preparedness and community building. Each child is going home with their own foraging journal filled with colorful local images, important species to know for safety, fast facts, and edible flora/fungi to learn more about with the help of their adults. This program is designed to help bring kids (and their families) back out into nature, connect them with valuable resources for wellness, and excite the next generation of green thumbs.
The WMC is proud to offer this 9-week program for k-5 at the Maides Park Davis Center with Wilmington Parks & Recreation starting September 2023.
