KELT STAFF LEARN THE BASICS about woody and shelf fungi with KELT on Aug. 19. KELT STAFF BATH — The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust invites curious observers of nature to join a walk discovering the woody shelf fungi of Bonyun Preserve on Saturday, Aug. 19 at 1 p.m. Part of KELT's Unassuming Undergrowth series, Maine Master Naturalist volunteer Alan Seamans will lead a hike to discover the world of these fungal organisms. This free event is geared for adults and children 10 years old and older.

Shelf fungi are woody, above-ground fruiting bodies, and are a common, inconspicuous sight in the New England wooded landscape. Seamans will lead hikers throughout the preserve looking for and identifying common species. Learn the basics about these spore-bearing bracket fungi and their important roles in the forest habitat.

This is a light rain or shine event and registration is encouraged atkennebecestuary.org/unassuming-undergrowth or (207) 442-8400 due to a limited class size. The Unassuming Undergrowth series was sponsored by the Merrymeeting Bay Trust, The Nature Conservancy, and Bath Savings Trust Company.
