Please join us for the Twelfth Annual Point Reyes National Seashore Fungus Fair!
Sunday, January 8, 2017
Bear Valley Visitor Center
Attend free lectures in the Bear Valley Visitor Center Auditorium. Learn about fungi and their role in the many Point Reyes habitats, from grasslands to redwoods. See the remarkable colors and shapes of wild mushrooms collected in the park.
Amateur mycologists will be on hand to talk about mushrooms, their role in the environment, and more! Learn more about the Bay Area Mycological Society activities, scientific and educational mission.
The 2017 Schedule of Speakers has yet to be finalized, but in 2016, the following talks were given:
- noon "Introduction to Wild and Edible Mushrooms" by David Rust
- 2 pm "Amanitarita's Freaky and Fabulous Fungi" by Debbie Viess
