Fungi Festival Saturday, August 27th, 2022

Interested in learning more about the fungi around you here in Alaska? This limited-space workshop, led by expert mushroom hunter Professor Philippe Amstislavski will involve learning about local mushrooms, foraging practice, and a grill out with the fruits of your labor!

Booking includes bunk in a Manitoba Yurt, Fungi Fry on Saturday night and Sunday morning coffee. The Fungi Festival will be led by Dr. Philippe Amstislavski of UAA, who studied the biology of mushrooms and fungi at Yale School of Forestry. Explore, identify and gather local mushrooms, lichens, and fungi in the Kenai Mountains.

Dinner on Saturday night is pot-luck style, so please bring a dish to compliment the Fungi Fry and breakfast for Sunday morning.

Tickets are $35. Youth should be accompanied by a guardian or parent.

Fall Woodstock 2022 Sunday, September 25th, 2022

Join us for Woodstock on Sunday, September 25th to get Manitoba ready for winter! We will get the wood ready for the main cabin and the Outpost Yurt, as well as making sure everything is cleaned up and organized for (hopefully) a fantastic winter!

We will have food, beer, good times, and hopefully good weather, but it is always good to be prepared for rain this time of year, so make sure to bring your rain jackets. Also, based on last year, we might even have a little snow on the ground, so be ready for anything!

Please RSVP by emailing us at [email protected]!
