Monday Mushroom Walks
Each Monday, November 12 through December 17, 2018 at 1:30 PM
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.
Enjoy an identification walk and learn mushroom lore with Naturalist and Mycologist, Mario Abreu each Monday from November 12 through December 17 (Nov 12, Nov 19, Nov 26, Dec 3, Dec 10, Dec 17).
Join us Saturday, November 3 for Coastal Cornucopia — an extra special Mushroom Walk and an afternoon brimming with knowledge and nourishment focused on fungi, fruits, vegetables, fermentation, and all things autumn.

But please remember, mushrooms found at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens should stay at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens... do not pick or collect!
