Fascinating Fungi

Meet at the Dwight Center

Ages 13 and up welcome

Mushrooms pop up in an amazing variety of forms and play many important roles in the environment. Sometimes we see them and often we don’t! This class will begin with an overview of Kingdom Fungi, followed by a stroll in the field to observe and collect samples. Returning to the classroom, you’ll learn techniques to examine and identify your fungi findings using field guides. Instructor George Riner began his fascination with mushrooms in New England in the early 1990’s and served as President of the Boston Mycological Club from 2001-2006. Since moving to the Santa Rosa area in 2008, George has been active in the Sonoma County Mycological Association and leads mushroom walks throughout Sonoma County. This class will primarily take place in the field and will include a moderate hike of 1-3 miles at a slow pace. Bring mushroom collecting gear: baskets, tackle boxes, small wax or paper bags, and small knives and tools to dig and pry fungi from soil and logs.
