Monday Field Trip to Extend your Mushroom Discovery

February 19 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


As part of our Mushroom Discovery series, this Monday Field Trip is an opportunity ONLY for individuals who participated in the Saturday and Sunday workshops. You may also sign up if you’re an alumni of a previous Mushroom Discovery program at the SLO Botanical Garden.

On Monday, Christian will lead us at offsite location to search for and identify mushrooms in their natural habitat. The location will be local and revealed closer to the day of the event, as our instructor needs to find the ideal spot for a good variety of mushrooms. This will be a rain or shine event, a fabulous experience, and a great way to learn even more about fungi.

Please dress for the weather and bring your own lunch and water bottle.

Sign up for the Mushroom Discovery Two-Day Workshop and the Friday night lecture separately.

Instructor Christian Schwarz studied Ecology and Evolution at UC Santa Cruz, where his interest in the world of fungi became irrevocable. Although he is passionate about ecology and biodiversity in general, Christian is most well-known as a field mycologist. He has co-authored two field guides — Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast and the upcoming Mushrooms of Cascadia, both with Noah Siegel. He primarily spends his time seeking, photographing, collecting, teaching about, and publishing research on North American macrofungi, and has served on the IUCN Red List Working Group for North American Fungi. He is a research associate of the Ken Norris Center for Natural History at UC Santa Cruz, where he teaches undergraduate courses in mycology and community science.
