Discover the Grounds » Edible, Poisonous, and Medicinal Mushrooms with Jay Justice

Join Jay Justice, a free-range, free-lance field mycologist, for this Discover the Grounds highlighting the interesting but rarely explored realm of macroscopic fungi. After a short informative talk about why mushrooms and fungi are some of the most important organisms in their ecosystems and exploring the niches they have carved out for themselves in nature, Justice will lead the group on a walk and provide comments on the various kinds of mushroom and fungi that might be seen along Crystal Bridges’ trails. We may even be lucky enough to see a Destroying Angel, or perhaps some delectable Chanterelles, a Reishi, or some Porcinis along the way!
