Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, 47 acres of botanical bliss fronting the Pacific Ocean


Mushroom Fest Mushroom Walk!

Monday, November 6 at 1:30pm

with Naturalist, Mycologist, and all around fun guy... Mario Abreu

Get a jump start on the 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. Please do not pick or collect... mushrooms found at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens should stay at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens!

If you cannot make this walk, we will be holding mushroom identification walks each Monday from November 20 through December 18.

MCBG's Mushroom Madness got a shout-out in NEW YORK MAGAZINE!
But please remember, mushrooms found at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens should stay at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens... do not pick or collect!
