Walk begins at 1:00 PM. Arrive early for a chance to visit before the walk.


Encompassing most of the land immediately surrounding Glendale Lake, Prince Gallitzen State Park has a good mix of forest and field habitat. If conditions are good we should find some interesting mushrooms to discuss.


We will be meeting at pavilion no.1 by the Pickerel Pond. It is just off Beaver Valley Road on the north- west side of the lake. GPS coordinates are:

N 40.68196 W -78.558776
