Mycological Society of San Francisco Fungus Fair

Sunday, January 29 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

When the first rains tease up the chanterelles and porcini, fungus lovers head to the Fungus Fair: A Celebration of Wild Mushrooms.

° Activities for children and adults.
° Lectures and workshops: Alan Rockefeller, Christopher Hobbs, Damon Tighe, Gordon Walker, Jack Laws, JR Blair, Melany Kahn
° Educational tables on varied subjects such as medicinal mushrooms, myco-remediation, cultivation, ecology, lichens, psychedelic fungi, dyes from fungi, toxicology, edible mushrooms, and more…
° Microscopes and spore prints
° Naturalistic displays of more than 300 species of locally collected fungi
° Identification table – bring your specimens to find out the species!

The 2023 Fungus Fair will display expertly identified fungi collected in various locations in the Bay Area. Annual collections have been made by MSSF since 1972. This historical information is a potentially important contribution to science as climate change affects our local ecosystems.
