Join Jack and Valerie Baker of the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club for a mushroom walk at the Otto and Magdalene Ackermann Nature Preserve.  Walk from 9 am – 11 am, and then break for lunch and ID.

Leader: Jack and Valerie Baker; jabaker2@hotmail.com; vabaker8@hotmail.com

Directions:  From Pittsburgh, travel to the intersection of PA 48 and US 30. Continue east on US 30 for ½ mile to make a left onto Leger Road (Sheetz on the right-hand corner). Turn left onto Leger Road and travel through the countryside for 2 miles. (Ignore the closed road signs as they are referring to a bridge near Brush Creek). At an intersection at the base of the hill, Leger Road turns to the right. Continue straight onto Ardara Road. After 1000 feet, look for the brown Ackermann Nature Preserve sign on the left and park at the end of the grassy strip between two homes.

GPS coordinates of the Preserve’s parking area are 40.36105, -79.74410 WGS84. Remember that the bridge from Ardara/PA 993 is currently not in use, so the Preserve must be reached from US 30.

Wear long pants and bring a lunch.  Jack and Valerie will id at lunch.
