NYC EcoFlora and the NY Mycological Society are co-hosting a fungal foray in Alley Pond Park on January 29 at 10 am.

Whether you are new to the world of fungi, or are an experienced mycologist, come join us to explore the park, share knowledge, and discover some amazing organisms! Led by Misha Zitser, an active iNaturalist contributor and fungi enthusiast, the walk will last 3+ hours. Make sure to dress warmly, and bring water and a snack, as well as a hand lens if you have one (we will have extras to borrow).
