Cedar Hill Cemetery in Hartford Hosts a 'Mushroom Walk' on Aug. 31
In you're in the habit of picking up wild mushrooms (pictured) with an eye toward eating them, you better know what you're looking for, or else. Joe Lenoce, of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society (and yes, there is one), leads tours through Hartford's Cedar Hill Cemetary in search of fungi; learn where to look, the basic types of shrooms, and the proper collecting procedures. Grab as you go, then chat with Lenoce to figure out what you've nabbed. The walk takes place on Saturday morning; cost is $5.
