This summer's mushroom season has been wildly underwhelming, the worst in recent memory. Nonetheless, people are finding things here and there.
Please join us for our weekly ID session on Monday night to share what you've found, see what others have found or to ask more general questions about anything fungi-related.
I encourage you to use iNaturalist - it's a great way to keep track of your finds, and you will be able to participate in these two NYMS projects:
Fungi of New York City
Fungi Beyond New York City
If you're not using iNaturalist, try to have images on your computer that you can share.
Either way, it's important to document your finds with clear pictures, showing details of cap, underside and stem, and to note the habitat. When possible, make a spore print.
All members are welcome to join - especially new members! We will try to make it as easy as possible for everyone and are eager to assist, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
