New Year’s Day Mushroom Count Central Park

Please join us for our annual New Year's Day Mushroom Count in Central Park, Manhattan, January 1, 2023

Please join us for our annual New Year's Day Mushroom Count in Central Park. Due to the recent frigid temperatures, expect to be looking for "dots on sticks," aka ascomycetes and other small fungi, plus the remains of any polypores from earlier in the season.

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.
