Friday-Sunday
Salt Lake City, Utah

We know that Utahns love their outdoors and want to connect them even more to their passions. But isn’t Utah too dry for mushrooms? Not at all! A quick drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon might reveal a cluster of Oyster mushrooms or a foray in the Uintas might include some Morels. Every ecosystem needs decomposers and, even in Utah, fungi are there to do the job. ​

Utah is also home to 660 species of bees — that’s one out of every four species endemic to the U.S. and fungi play a massive role in sustaining bee diversity and populations. Research already shows that mushroom mycelium helps bees fight diseases that contribute to colony collapse. Our state has the potential to make a massive impact on bee conservation.
