The Mushrooms in Florida program scheduled for Sept. 30 by Arleen and Alan Bessette is being canceled due to Hurricane Irma.

Because of the clean-up efforts taking place throughout Central Florida and the rest of Florida and the damage caused by flooding along the St. Marys River where the Bessette’s live, we decided to cancel this program.

This program is being rescheduled during the 2018 mushroom and fungi growing season, which takes place between July and October. Look for it to occur during a 2018 October weekend. Watch TLNC’s website ( or Facebook page to further program information.
