Mushrooms appear as if by magic after a rain and often disappear as quickly. Come take a walk at the estate with members of the Boston Mycological Clubthe country's oldest surviving mycological (dealing with fungi) society on Sunday, July 22nd at 10:30 a.m. Go out and search for various types of fungi and bring them back to be examined and identified. This will be a special opportunity to learn the basics of identifying the mushrooms you find as you explore the outdoors.
