NYMS Pop-Up Walk Prospect Park, Brooklyn Saturday April 2, 2022

Please join us for a walk in Prospect Park this Saturday.

There are few fungi about this time of year. We should expect to see crusts, tiny ascomycetes aka ‘dots on sticks’, polypores and a few jelly fung. Perhaps, if we’re lucky, we’ll also see a gilled mushroom or two.

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

Many members document their finds using the iNaturalist app – we highly recommend doing so.

There are restrooms near the park entrance at Lincoln Avenue and Ocean Parkway.
