Join us on the APK mushroom-picking trip on Tuesday 26th September 2023! Our trip is to Mälikkälä in Turku. On the trip we’ll try to find some of the most common edible mushrooms in Finland and see how to identify them. The trip is not, however, a course for mushroom-picking and everyone is responsible for the mushrooms they pick – because of this we suggest that everyone purchases a mushroom guide book or application that you can use to practice identifying different mushrooms together with the trip guides.
We’ll gather at 4:40 pm at the Asentajankatu bus stop which is near Länsikeskus and then go to the forest together. You can get there for example using the Föli bus number 301, which leaves from the Kauppatori E2 bus stop at 4:25 pm and should be at the Asentajankatu bus stop at 4:40 pm. We’ll return from the trip around 8 pm. You can for example take a bus number 300 back to Kauppatori leaving at 7:53 pm from the Asentajankatu bus stop.
The trip is free. Everyone should take at least a water bottle and other snacks as necessary with them. Additionally, we suggest taking with you a basket or plastic bag and a small knife (preferably a mushroom knife, ie. one with a brush in the other end). If you’re late or lost, call us at +358 40 181 5514 (Ida) and we’ll try to help you.
