Native Plant Society hosting mushroom hunt

The San Juan/Four Corners Native Plant Society will host “Wild Mushroom Hunting” on Saturday near Lizard Head Pass.

The group will meet at 8:30 a.m. about an hour north of Cortez.

After the hunt, participants are invited to trip leader John Sir Jesse’s house to eat them at an early dinner. People who plan to attend the dinner should bring a potluck dish. Jesse heads the Telluride Mushroom Festival.

Participants should bring hiking boots, lunch, several liters of water, rain gear, a soft brush for mushrooms and several large cloth bags.
