An iNat Introduction to Mushrooming

As promised in this post, here's part two of a video series to help iNat users get out and exploring new taxa. This time, it's mushrooms!

Here in the Bay Area we're lucky to have Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast: A Comprehensive Guide to the Fungi of Coastal Northern California co-author Christian Schwarz (@leptonia) nearby, so I made a sojourn to Santa Cruz and to record some of this advice and thoughts about searching for these these crazy organisms. He's a great teacher and a real enthusiast, and I hope you find him as inspiring and helpful as I did. It was tough to finish the video because every time I started editing it, I wanted to immediately get out and find some fungi instead of staying in - and I was never particularly into them before!

The video is meant to be a very basic intro to finding and photographing mushrooms for iNaturalist; if you find yourself wanting to get more in-depth knowledge, Christian suggests joining a local mushrooming or mycological group to get some hands-on tutelage in the field.
