After the early rains, December is the best time to observe the widest variety of mushrooms. Comb the trails with an expert on mushroom identification, J.R. Blair. We will pluck a variety of mushrooms and then reassemble at the Visitor Center with Mr. Blair to identify and discuss them.
Mr. Blair is a long-time member & past president of the Mycological Society of SF. At present he is a SFSU biology lecturer & the director of the Sierra Nevada Field Campus. J.R. Blair received his Master’s degree in Conservation Biology focusing on mushroom taxonomy in ‘99 within San Pedro Valley Park.
