Please join us for the Twelfth Annual Point Reyes National Seashore Fungus Fair!
Sunday, February 12, 2017
10 am to 4 pm
Bear Valley Visitor Center
The Fungus Fair had to be postponed on Sunday, January 8, 2017 due to an "atmospheric river event". The Fungus Fair has been rescheduled and will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2017.
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.
For 2017, the following talks are scheduled:
- 11 am "Truffles and their Funky Friends" by Stephanie Jarvis
- 12:30 pm "Introduction to Wild and Edible Mushrooms" by David Rust
