NYMS Pop-Up Walk Alley Pond Park, Queens, Saturday July 16, 2022

Trichaptum sp., infopetal, Alley Pond Park, July 11, 2021

Please join us for a pop-up walk this Saturday in Cunningham Park, Queens.

The city has not had significant rainfall in over a month so we’re likely to see only a very modest amount of fungi, such as ascomycetes (aka ‘dots on sticks’), crusts and polypores.

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

It will be hot, so bring plenty of water as well as lunch. Mosquitoes and ticks are out, so make sure to protect yourself.

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: MTA Service Alerts.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
