Mushroom Walk & Species Survey
Join John Michelotti for an entertaining and educational walk to explore the fungi in the Arboretum forests. Mushrooms open up a world of history, science and incredible facts to boggle the mind. We will discuss the mushrooms we discover: their historic uses, medicinal properties, ecological functions, edibility, and more.
We will bring samples back to the center to be categorized, identified, and uploaded to INaturalist to be part of the Fungal Diversity Survey of North America.
Dress appropriately for the weather - we'll be exploring rain or shine. Pre-registration with the Mountain Top Arboretum is required.
