Summer Fungi Walk

green-wood summer mushroom

Rain date: Saturday, August 13th

Green-Wood is a wonderland of mushrooms in the summer season. This popular walking tour treks into the depths of the Cemetery’s extensive woodlands to encounter colorful and curious varieties of fungi. Led by Sigrid Jakob and Potter Palmer, members of the New York Mycological Society and founders of the Green-Wood Fungi Phenology Project, both experts and novices alike will learn how to differentiate the delicious from the deadly and start putting names to some of the city’s more common summer fungi. Be prepared for off-road walking.

Price: $25, and $20 for members
