While the colorful trees and migrating birds of Green-Wood get lots of buzz (and Instagram posts), visitors might not know about 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 eye-opening exploration of the wonderful fungi on our 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 for the next hike in the woods or trip to the farmers market.


$10 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $15 for non-members
