NY Mycological Society Walk – Fungus Among Us

Saturday, October 14, 2017

10:00 a.m.2:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

We'll be joining experts from the New York Mycological Society touring the island to search for mushrooms and other fungi that can be found on Randall's Island.

The cool moist weather of fall is when many fungi begin to fruit, and is the only time they'll be visible above ground in order to spread their spores. These mysterious but potent organisms have the ability to break down pollution and rebuild the environment, functioning as natures nervous system and making nutrients availible in soil.

Join as we explore the park looking for and help us document these incredible organisms!
