Mushroom Fest Mushroom Walk!

with MCBG Staff Mycologist and all around fun guy... Mario Abreu

Get a jump start on mushroom season...

Join us for an extra special Mushroom Walk in celebration of the Mushroom, Wine, and Beer Festival! The Gardens is home to more than 150 species of mushrooms during fall and winter on the Mendocino Coast. Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of some types of fungi. Normally hidden underground, these reproductive structures lie dormant until the rainy season, when they sprout above the earth. We consider mushrooms to be one of our collections, and we are the only botanical garden in the U.S. to label the mushrooms in our garden with both scientific and common names.

If you cannot make this walk, we will be holding mushroom identification walks each Monday from November 21 through December 19.
