Kettunen Center's Road Scholar - Stalking the Elusive Morel

Kettumushroom 2nen Center’s Road Scholar program, Stalking the Elusive Morel and Other Natural Encounters, was held last week (May 1-4, 2011) with twenty-two participants from the Midwest states. The most successful morel mushroom foragers of the group were both from Michigan, Christal L. and Jim Marcoux took the prize! It was a great time for all to learn from experts and to get outside to enjoy spring wildflowers, nesting and migrating birds and finding the elusive morel.
