FULL – Mushroom Discovery Walk (in-person, outside)

Date(s) - February 5, 2022
11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Discover the fascinating and weird world of mushrooms!  We will have an outdoor talk to learn about the ecological roles of fungi, their forms, how they eat, reproduce and basics of identification. Then we will walk and carefully observe and explore the species we find together!

About the instructor: Leah Bendlin is a Portland based mushroom and community science enthusiast. She caught the mycology bug after her first outing hunting chanterelles with a friend. She was amazed at the diversity of mushrooms and set out to learn the science of identification. That curiosity proved insatiable, and now, 9 years later, she is an expert taxonomist and delights in teaching others. You can find her on Instagram page @leah_mycelia.
