Interested in learning about mushrooms? The Lodi Lake Nature Area docents are having an educational workshop on Thursday to teach the public about the most common mushrooms at the lake. Dan Wyrick will teach the free course and show examples of a variety of common mushrooms.

There will be monthly docent meetings through May covering a variety of topics. All of the programs will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Lodi Police Community Room, 215 W. Elm St.

Below are the other topics that the docents will cover in future meetings this year:

  • Feb. 10 — A group of East Bay Municipal Utility District scientists will discuss the salmonid program in the Mokelumne River.
  • March 10 — Donnie Ratcliff, with U.S. Fish and Wildlife, will help participants identify aquatic bugs found at the lake.
  • April 14 — Historian Ralph Clark will present a program using pictures of the Lodi area. His recent books will be for sale.
  • May 12 — The Storm Drain Detectives, a group of high school students, will present water quality data collected from the Mokelumne River.

All of the meetings will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Lodi Police Department Community Room, 215 W. Elm St.
