Date & Time: Saturday, May 17th, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Location: Inwood Hill Park. Meet at Seaman Avenue and Isham Street, Manhattan.
Guide: Paul Sadowski, New York Mycological Society
Description: Come and see the diversity of fungi that grow in the park. We will be finding Polypores, Crust fungi and Ascomycetes which thrive in the early spring weather. Given the evanescent nature of fungi, it is difficult to know what species will be fruiting during our visit. Inwood Hill Park may be hiding fungi species not yet discovered!
Please Note: We recommend being properly outfitted - long pants, long sleeve shirt, and wide brimmed hat. Definitely bring water. You may also like to have sunscreen, camera, mushroom guidebooks, hand lens or magnifying glass and bug spray. If inclement weather, contact us here via eventbrite.
