STOP AND SMELL THE MUSHROOMS
June 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$15
While the colorful trees and migrating birds of Green-Wood receive plenty of attention, visitors might overlook the bounty of mushrooms sprouting throughout the Cemetery’s 478 verdant acres. Gary Lincoff, author of The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms and instructor at the New York Botanical Garden, leads an exploration of the wonderful world of fungi on Green-Wood’s grounds.
Learn the basics of identifying mushrooms species and the crucial differences between edible and poisonous varieties. This tour is a great opportunity for novice and expert foragers alike.
