The Fungus Among Us with “Fascinated By Fungi”

Saturday, April 15, 2023 – 12:00 PM

Join Dr. Gordon Walker for an exclusive hike exploring the mushrooms and lichen at a Napa Valley State Park. Gordon Walker is a Ph.D. Biochemist who shares his extensive knowledge of fungus on social media with the handle @fascinatedbyfungi on popular platforms like Instagram, FaceBook, YouTube, and TikTok

This hike will start in the parking lot of Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park amongst the oak woodlands. Funds support the Napa Valley State Parks Association, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation and conservation of California State Parks within Napa County.

This is not a foraging outing but rather an opportunity to learn about mushrooms while exploring this beautiful area.

NVSPA Member Cost: $10
