Introductory Fungus Walk at Joaquin Miller Park

  • Joaquin Miller Park Meeting location TBA Oakland, CA 94602 United States of America (map)

This event is SOLD OUT! 

But all is not lost... check out our Feb 7 "Mushrooms of the Bay Area @ Tilden" mini-fungus fair happening the next day. It's free and drop-in. See you there!


The atmospheric river has bathed California in water, and mushrooms are popping up in throngs! You’re invited to join us for a dive into the woods for a basic introduction to these fabulous creatures - Who are they? What do they do? How can you recognize them? All this and more awaits us between the misty fern fronds.

Our mushroom guide will be Christian Schwarz, co-author of the forthcoming book A Guide to Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast, a comprehensive book about California mushrooms.

Please bring drinking water, snacks, and warm layers. Dress for wet weather! Please bring drinking water, snacks, and warm layers. Dress for wet weather! This walk will not include tasting or collecting.
