The club will meet at Oil Creek State Park at 1:00 PM for a mushroom walk followed by an identification session.

 

Oil Creek is a beautiful park that bears witness to nature's resilience. It's located near Titusville PA - home of the Drake Well, which was the  first commercial oil well in the United States. What is now the park was once the epicenter of the first oil boom in the country.
