Mycological Society of San Francisco Fungus Fair

December 8

In the San Francisco Bay Area, when the first rains tease up the chanterelles and porcini, fungus lovers head to the Fungus Fair: A Celebration of Wild Mushrooms.

Records of fungi collected for display at the Fungus Fair, date back to 1972. These records constitute a 47-year continuous record of early December fungal diversity in the SF Bay Area. This historical information may become an important contribution to science as climate change affects our local ecosystems.

Hands-on activities at the Fungus Fair include crafts, mushroom dyes, and do-it-yourself mushroom growing kits.
We have many educational tables on varied subjects such as:
– Identification table – bring your specimens to find out what you found!
– medicinal mushrooms
– myco-remediation
– cultivation
– ecology
– lichens
– psychedelic fungi
– toxicology
– microscopes and spore prints

There will be a naturalistic woodland display and tables with more than 300 identified species of locally collected fungi.
