Want to learn more about the fungi and mushrooms around you? Join us for a deep dive into their bizarre, beautiful and bountiful world. We will start the day with a brief introduction to mycology (the study of fungi) and then walk about the botanical reserve and discuss the ecological roles, edibility, toxicity, medicinal uses and other aspects of the fungi that we find. Every fungus has a story and much wisdom to offer! With Taye Bright.
