Are you interested in learning about the fantastic world of fungi but not sure where to start? Join High Park Nature Centre naturalist Kami Valkova this fall for a workshop that will introduce you to the world of mycology! In this workshop we will explore: the basics of fungal identification using field guides and hand lenses, the important ecological roles that fungi play in woodland ecosystems, and some of the many species of fungi that can be found in High Park. We will begin indoors for an introduction, then head outside for a guided hike through High Park! We will search for fungi, practice our ID skills, and delve into the connection between fungi and the rest of the forest. The hike will be approximately 2 hours long and of moderate difficulty. Please note that this is not a foraging workshop. We will not be collecting or consuming any fungi on our hike.
