Summer is the perfect season to explore Pennsylvania’s land in search of interesting and useful plants, trees, and mushrooms.  McConnells Mill State Park — with its deeply-cut gorges, hemlock-lined ravines, whitewater currents, and historical landmarks — is a prime area for summer exploration.

While exploring the Slippery Rock Creek Gorge within the park, we’ll delve into a myriad of fascinating topics related to this season's flora and fungi, including:

* Edible and medicinal plants
* Edible and medicinal mushrooms
* Summer wildflower identification
* Tree identification, along with edible and medicinal uses
* Medicine-making using wild plants and mushrooms
* Natural history and ecology of the area

… and more!
