Program Overview: Come explore fascinating fungi in the forests of Yosemite on our mushroom program! Fungi, including mushrooms, are an often overlooked and underapprecieted component of our park’s ecosystems. In this lesser explored Yosemite environment, we will learn more about the role of fabulous fungi in nature, how Indigenous cultures utilized them, and search for (and perhaps even collect) seasonally available varieties.
