On Saturday, February 26, from 9:30am to 2 pm, Bouverie Preserve biologist Jeanne Wirka will lead a class on mushrooms and their relatives.

The day will start with a brief classroom discussion of types of fungi and how to search them out. Then the group will explore known mushroom spots at the Preserve to see specimens up close. Please note, this is not a collecting class—no mushrooms will be harvested nor will mushroom edibility be discussed (contact the Sonoma Mycological Association if you want to go on a collecting foray.
