Announcing Ski Mentoring Program

Our new program for beginning adult classic skiers connects our volunteers with skiers who have completed an organized ski lesson to meet on snow to provide tips and answer questions about how to improve and enjoy the skiing experience.

Link here for info about how the program works, how to request a mentor, practical learning tips such as clothes, safely falling and getting up, waxes, equipment, places to ski, getting into and out of your bindings and just stress-free support.

Program by president of the MN Mycological Society, John Lamprecht
 Mushrooms 101 – What Mushrooms are and Basic Identification
We will help separate fact from fiction regarding mushrooms and help you to easily place nearly any of the hundreds of mushrooms we can find in Minnesota in one of 5 groups…including our State Fungus, the Morel. Many personally taken photos are featured to help you better know what it is you are seeing as you walk the woods or even your yards and gardens.
