NYMS Pop-Up Walk Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan – Saturday April 16, 2022

Cerioporus squamosus, Zihao Wang, Inwood Hill Park, 4/24/21

Please join us on a walk in Inwood Hill Park this Saturday.

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.
