NYMS Pop-Up Walk Cunningham Park, Queens Sunday May 22, 2022

Reticularia lycoperdon, Tom Bigelow, 5/21/16

Please join us for a walk in Cunningham Park this Sunday.

We’re still in the middle of the ‘spring lull’, with fungi relatively scarce. We’re most likely to find tiny ascomycetes aka ‘dots on sticks’, crusts and polypores.
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.
It will be hot! Bring plenty of 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.
The walk
To reach Cunningham Park take the E or F train to the Kew Gardens-Union Turnpike station and switch to the Q46 Bus. Take the Q46 Bus to the Francis Lewis Boulevard stop at the corner of Union Turnpike and Francis Lewis Boulevard.
We will meet by the entrance to the park at the South East corner of the intersection at 11am.
It is always advisable to check the MTA Service Advisory web page.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
