Pop-up walk, Prospect Park, Brooklyn

Trade your turkey sandwiches for turkey tails this Saturday and join us for a Thanksgiving weekend pop-up walk in Prospect Park

Gilled fungi are scarce this time of year and will not be back in any number until late spring. Instead we'll be looking for crusts, polypores and ascomycetes ("bumps on sticks"). Be prepared examine branches and logs for tiny, inconspicuous but often quite spectacular fungi. Walks typically last 3+ hours.

Bring lunch and water.

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.
