Sponsored by the Bay Area Mycological Society and Point Reyes National Seashore
Join us for the 12th 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.
Debbie Viess presents the beauties and oddities of the fungal world. David Rust will list some of the "do's" and many of the "don'ts" of edible mushrooms. We have a new speaker this year: Stephanie Jarvis will present a talk about truffles!
Amateur mycologists will be on hand to talk about mushrooms, and their role in the environment. See our beautiful Death Cap scuplture. Learn more about the Bay Area Mycological Society activities, scientific and educational mission.
