NJ Audubon July Mushroom Meander

July 15, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Led by Dorothy Smullen, Teacher/Naturalist, former president of the New Jersey Mycological Association

Join Dorothy for a “talk and walk” to discover the fascinating world of fungi. Fungi have been used for thousands of years by humans, not only as food but as medicine, fire-starters, insect repellants, decoration, for religious ceremonies and more. Fungi are very important to forests. Not only are they decomposers and recyclers in the forest ecosystem, but they also connect to tree roots – a mutualistic symbiosis that allows trees to communicate with each other. After a talk and display about fungi fun facts, we will walk the trails to look for the diverse groups of mushrooms and fungi. Hand-outs available.

One person per ticket. Ticket sale ends 7/14 at 4:00 PM. You must pre-register, walk-ins will not be allowed to participate. Limit 15.

COST: $15 members, $20 nonmembers.
