Walk-in (all ages) Guided hikes 10-10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m.-noon or 1-1:30 p.m. Fall is one of the best time to hunt for mushrooms in the Midwest. Join members of the Kansas City chapter of the Missouri Mycological Society on Hikes around the Discovery Center for a mushroom hunt! Learn how and when mushrooms grow, ID trees associated with certain mushrooms and get tips for mushroom hunting on you own. Mushrooms will be on display in the lobby (possibly even some fresh ones from the Discovery Center!) along with a mushroom themed craft and tips on the best tools, books and groups to get started with.
