Mushroom BioBlitz with J.R. Blair

December 15, 2023 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

On Friday, December 15th at 10 am, a maximum of 30 people can comb the trails at SPVP for one hour searching for and collecting mushrooms. Participants will place the collected mushrooms in a large basket or doubled paper bags.  Waxed paper sandwich bags (available at Oceana Market in Eureka Square, Pacifica) would be helpful if you can find them.  Then return to the Walnut Grove picnic area for J.R. Blair to identify and discuss the collected specimens.  The more mushrooms collected, the better!  Rain does NOT cancel the event, so do dress accordingly. 

The collection of mushrooms is for the Mycological Society of San Francisco’s Fungus Fair at First Unitarian Universalist Church Center, 1187 Franklin Street in San Francisco.  The Fungus Fair will take place on Saturday, December 16th from 10:30 am – 5:30 pm.

Please make certain that you can attend the SPVP BioBlitz and then sign up on Eventbrite:
