Please join us for a pop-up walk in Long Pond Park, Staten Island this Sunday!
The club is headed to Long Pond Park on Staten Island this week. While we are still firmly in ascomycete, jelly, and old polypore season, expect to enjoy the wild, wooded atmosphere of this forested park, with the possibility of new fungal growth given the milder temperatures and recent rain. The park is more remote than many others we visit in the city, so make sure you come prepared with proper clothing for the weather and a snack if you plan on staying the whole duration of the walk.
Walks typically last 3+ hours, with the option to depart at any time along the way.
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.
