NNYMS Pop-Up Walk Van Cortlandt Park, Bronx Saturday June 18, 2022

Xylaria hypoxylon, Tom Bigelow, Van Cortlandt Park, 6/6/21

Please join us for a walk in Van Cortlandt Park this Saturday.

While we should be seeing some gilled fungi and mycorrhizals this time of year, they’ve been in short supply on previous walks. However, we are guaranteed to see tiny ascomycetes aka ‘dots on sticks’, jellies, crusts and polypores.

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

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.

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