Mushroom BioBlitz with J.R. Blair

Saturday, January 28 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

On Saturday, January 28th at 10 am, 30 people can comb the trails for one hour searching and collecting mushrooms.  Place your collected mushrooms in a large basket or doubled paper bag. Waxed paper sandwich bags would be helpful if you can find them. Then return to the Walnut Grove picnic area for J.R. Blair to identify and discuss them. 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 Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill on Sunday, January 29th.

Please make certain that you can attend and sign up on Eventbrite:
