Discover the fascinating and fun world of mushrooms!  The morning will start with a brief outdoor introduction about the ecological roles of fungi, their forms, how they eat, reproduce and basics of identification. The talk will be followed by a casual walk on the trails to carefully observe and explore the species commonly found at Hoyt and in the Pacific Northwest during the spring!

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.
