The Southern Appalachians offer an exceptional diversity of fascinating and ecologically-important mushrooms and fungi. Naturalist Luke Cannon leads participants through practice identifying the 12 most common fungal families and their preferred habitats and ecological connections. Two full day sessions onsite in the Arboretum forest allow for lots of fun learning in place. Students should dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to walk short distances over uneven terrain.
