Fungi Bioblitz 2022 - May 1 (Sunday)

Just as we did in 2021, the Fungi Phenology project is taking part in the City Nature Challenge Bioblitz in Green-Wood. On Sunday May 1 from 10AM to 12PM Sigrid Jakob and Jon Brown will be found at the 25th Street entrance answering questions, demo-ing iNaturalist (here is a link to our own iNaturalist tutorial), lending hand lenses (we may require a $5 deposit), and exhibiting examples of finds from last year. There will be no organized foraging but everyone will be encouraged to head out into the GW kame and kettle to document finds. We know that spring is a frustratingly slow time for fungi in general but there were a few gilled finds last year and plenty of lichen observations captured.

See you at the Bioblitz!
