Please join us for a pop-up walk in Forest Park, Queens this Sunday
The more typical gilled fungi are becoming scarce this time of year and will not be back in any number until late spring. Instead we'll be seeing a greater number of crusts and ascomycetes ("bumps on sticks"). Be prepared to look for the tiny, inconspicuous and otherwise overlooked.
Bring lunch and water. Tick and mosquito season is not over yet - make sure to protect yourself.
If you've never been on a mushroom walk with us before, here is what to expect.
We highly recommend using the iNaturalist app to document the fungi you find. Find out how to use it here.
