Join us for the 9th annual Point Reyes National Seashore Fungus Fair! Learn about the fungi of the Point Reyes National Seashore. See remarkable colors and shapes of wild mushrooms that were collected right in the park. Attend lectures, and learn about edible and poisonous mushrooms in the Bear Valley Visitor Center Auditorium.
Darvin Deshazer has been studying and photographing fungi at Point Reyes for decades. Debbie Viess takes you on a tour of common and uncommon western Amanita species. David Rust helped organize the Point Reyes Mycoblitz Forays, a longterm survey of fungi in the park.
Amateur mycologists will be on hand to talk about mushrooms, and their role in the environment. Learn more about the Bay Area Mycological Society activities, scientific and educational mission.
