NYMS Pop-Up walk in Clove Lakes Park, Staten Island, Sunday, July 3

Trichoderma sp., Tom Bigelow, Clove Lakes Park, June 2, 2013

Please join us for a walk this Sunday in Clove Lakes Park, Staten Island. The club has not visited this park in the summer before, so it will be interesting to see what we find.

The city has only seen half an inch of rain in the last couple of weeks, so we’re likely to see only a modest amount of fungi, such as ascomycetes aka ‘dots on sticks’, crusts, polypores and perhaps a few gilled fungi.

If you’ve never been on a mushroom walk with us before, here’s what to expect.

Consider bringing a copy of the key that Paul Sadowski shared with us in yesterday’s lecture so we can key out some of our finds together.

Bring water and lunch. Mosquitoes and ticks are out, so make sure to protect yourself. Long pants and firm footwear are recommended.

Many members document their finds using the iNaturalist app – we highly recommend doing so.

The walk

It is always advisable to check the MTA Service Advisory web page.

I hope to see you on Sunday!

2022 summer/fall scheduled walks

Mark your calendars – summer is almost here!

The following is a list of our official scheduled walks for the year. We’ll continue to have pop-up walks on all other weekends, which we’ll announce a few days before.

Some of our walks involve car-pooling from train or bus stations. If you have a car, please help out by meeting us at the station or bus stop.

We kindly ask that club members do not collect at these sites in the week before a scheduled walk.

Transit schedules can change. You will get an email on the Thursday before every walk that has the most up-to-date information.

I look forward to seeing you at one of these walks!
