Mushroom Walks 2017
Each Monday, November 20 through December 18, 2017 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 20 through December 18 (Nov 20, Nov 27, Dec 4, Dec 11, Dec 18). Join us Monday, November 6 for an extra special Mushroom Walk in celebration of the Mushroom, Wine, and Beer Festival!
