Mushroom Hunt at Big Basin Redwoods SP

March 1, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Mushroom Hunt!
Sunday, March 1 at 2 p.m.
AND Sunday, March 8 at 2 p.m.

Big Basin is home to many different species of fungi. Some look like our traditional pizza mushrooms, but others are wildly colored, strangely shaped, very small, smelly or slimy. Come join Ranger Emily Bertram as she hunts for mushrooms. Learn of the important role they play in the forest, who eats them and how to identify them. This is a family friendly, easy 1.5-hour walk. (Picking mushrooms in a state park is illegal, so we’ll just be looking.) Meet at Park Headquarters.
