NYMS Pop-Up Walk Alley Pond Park, Queens Sunday April 24, 2022

Porodisculus pendulus, Tom Bigelow, Alley Pond Park, 4/14/19

Please join us on a walk in Alley Pond Park this Sunday.

We should expect to see tiny ascomycetes aka ‘dots on sticks’, crusts and polypores. Perhaps, if we’re lucky, we’ll also see a couple of the first spring fungi – genera like Agrocybe or Pluteus.

The more typical macrofungi will not appear in any abundance until late June.

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

Bring water and lunch. Note that ticks are now a year-round hazard.

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!
