Leprechaun Hunt, March 17, with Tom Volk
Posted by pabloski on March 08 2013 17:20
On March 17 we will hunt for Leprechauns in Inwood Hill Park with Tom Volk, Leprechaun expert, of the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. If we don't find any, his extensive knowledge of crust fungi and polypores will serve our group well, as we will most certainly find these fungi in abundance, with or without Leprechauns perched upon them.
After the hunt, which will begin at noon (be mindful of the time change) we will head to Eugenia Bone's loft for a workshop on these creatures, feeding our little friends some Irish Soda bread in keeping with the holiday.
Take the IRT 1 or the IND A train to 207th (last) stop walk west to the park take a right and meet us at the Isham St. entrance at Seaman Avenue. That's Noontime on St. Patrick's Day, March 17.
