Mushrooms of the Iceman
March 9 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM$15 – $20
In 1991, the oldest natural human mummy in Europe was discovered with remnants of two mushroom species. Why was Oetzi the Iceman carrying these two mushrooms over 5,000 years ago? Join Naturalist Mollie Kreb to learn about the tinder polypore and birch polypore. Meet at the Museum for an introduction to these mushrooms, then carpool to a nearby trail to find them. Practice carrying a fire with tinder polypore and try a birch polypore tea. Dress for the weather and bring snacks and water. Meet at the Cable Natural History Museum at 9 a.m. and return by noon. Register by March 5 by calling 715-798-3890 or go to www.cablemuseum.org $15 member/$20 non-member.
