Seminar to identify mushrooms

The autumn rains that have soaked the North Coast over the past few weeks have brought an eruption of mushrooms.

The Redwoods Parks Association and Tolowa Dunes Stewards invite the public to join biologist Wendell Wood on Nov. 7 for an introduction to the wild mushrooms and fungi of the area. Wood will lead an all-day field seminar the following day to locate and identify (not collect) the fungi of the coastal forests and fields.

Helping Haiti’s orphans

Team Redwood, a group of volunteer American health care workers, will travel to Haiti Nov. 8 to provide medical care for orphans. Submitted
Nearly five years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, Carolyn Dikes says she hopes to return to a country that’s nearly back on its feet.

Dikes, a local physician’s assistant, is part of Team Redwood, a group of volunteer healthcare workers who’ve visited Haiti to lend a hand annually since the devastating earthquake of 2010. She will head back to Port Au Prince on Friday to purchase food and supplies before the rest of her teammates arrive on Nov. 8. This will be her sixth visit to several orphanages in the island nation. 

Senior Sleuth: Hymns, prayer on new radio show

I am introducing my new radio show, “Sunday Afternoon Hymns and Prayer,” on KFUG 101.1 FM, every Sunday from 3-4 p.m. And I am also introducing the first guest on my show, Pastor Blake Inscore of First Baptist Church, Crescent City. 

I attended First Baptist’s 65th anniversary service on Sunday, Oct. 19. It was also a dedication service for their new stained glass windows provided by local artist Mike Selfridge. Pastor Blake led the young boys in the congregation in line around the sanctuary and discussed each window. It was an inspiring ceremony, and the windows were beautiful.

Church Notebook: Celebrate fall with harvest festivals Friday

Family-friendly fun at local churches offers safe alternative to trick-or-treating  

It’s hard to believe, but we only have five weeks left to get our shoeboxes filled and ready to send off to Samaritan’s Purse. It’s my favorite charity — but do you know what else they do?

In addition to the Operation Christmas Child program, they fund clean water and medical projects that provide specialized surgeries for children. They are most often the first ones on the ground at the site of any disaster, and their newest program takes place in Alaska, helping the families of our wounded warriors.

Spooks and spiders on haunting tour

Don your costume for Halloween-theme tours at Oregon Caves starting Sunday 

Oregon Caves National Monument will celebrate Halloween by offering haunted candlelit tours once daily starting Sunday.

The tour will feature spooky stories of local history and a walk among the bats and the spiders. Folks are also encouraged to wear costumes as long as the fabric and makeup are not at risk of touching or coming off in the cave; this includes trailing fabric, capes, fake tails and glitter.
