SAVE THE DATE FOR FUNGI FUN!
On Saturday, December 2, from 1:00 to 3:30 PM, the Redwood Valley Outdoor Education Project will host a Fall Mushroom Workshop and Walk led by local mushroom experts Mark Albert and Dave Bengston. The public is invited to come learn about the essential role that fungus plays in an oak woodland ecosystem and meet some of our local mushrooms. Mark and Dave will bring a wide variety of mushrooms to share. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the mixed woodlands at the RVOEP to see what mushrooms are up. Beginning mushroom enthusiasts and veterans should find this a stimulating afternoon.
If the weather does not cooperate this month and conditions for mushroom fruiting are not up to standard, we will postpone this event. Pre-registration is not required. The workshop is free, but all donations will benefit the RVOEP.
The RVOEP is located at 8301 Pinecrest Drive in Redwood Valley. Pinecrest Drive begins directly across from the Redwood Valley Elementary School on School Way. Participants are encouraged to dress warmly and bring a cup for hot tea and coffee. If the weather is stormy, the workshop will be held at the Eagle Peak Middle School cafeteria, 8601 West Road in Redwood Valley.
RVOEP’S ANNUAL WILDLIFE FILM FESTIVAL
For five consecutive Friday evenings this season, you will have the opportunity to see some of the best wildlife and ecological films in the world. Films featured in the series are award-winning films from the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula, Montana. Hundreds of filmmakers enter their work in this prestigious film festival and we have selected some of the best films to show right here in Ukiah. The series will run on [dates TBD 2018]. Doors will open at 6:15 at our very own Ukiah Civic Center.
Series tickets for the entire five nights will be available at the Mendocino Book Company for a $45 donation to the RVOEP. Individual tickets are available at the door for a suggested donation of $10.
The Mendocino Book Co. is located at 102 S School St. in Ukiah, phone (707) 468-5940.
These extraordinary films are truly a celebration of our earth and its great diversity. Please join us in supporting the RVOEP and enjoying a wonderful community event. Each evening will begin with live music provided by outstanding local musicians. Watch the newspaper for further details or check this website often. Get your tickets early. Last year many of the films were sold out.
