Description

Come explore thewonderfully weird world of fungi at Save Mount Diablo’s very own Mangini Ranch property! Learn some basics of mushroom identification, sustainable mushroom foraging, and the ecological importance of fungal communities in nature while enjoying fantastic views. This hike involves a moderately steep walk. Please note, we will not be foraging for or collecting mushrooms. Be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are recommended; hiking poles may be useful. Heavy rain cancels.
