Pop-up walk, Cunningham Park, Queens

Please join us for a walk in Cunningham Park, Queens this Saturday!

Join us for a walk through Cunningham Park this weekend and as continue our winter fungi hunt. This time of year our focus turns mostly to the very small, inconspicuous organisms who do the important work of breaking down leaf litter and sticks into rich soil. These "dots on sticks" or ascomycetes are often unassuming to the naked eye, but become quite interesting under a hand lens or loupe.

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.
