Trash Cleanup Mushroom Foray
January 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
North Texas Mycological Association is returning to the worst hit area we have visited throughout the year in terms of pollution with a goal to remove as much trash as possible with an emphasis on finding fungi at the same time. We will be providing gloves, trash bags and handing out raffle tickets for each one that is filled! We will be raffling off club merchandise like our shirts, pins and bumper stickers as well as free membership packages for this year. Towards the end of the event we will gather at a central location and discuss all of the wild mushrooms and fungi we find, identifying what we can and talking about specific ecological roles that each species may have.
This is a FREE event for all ages but we ask that you RSVP by getting a ticket as it helps reduce the amount of waivers and paperwork we have to do on site. Please be sure to wear proper clothing as the weather is beginning to cool down, bring plenty of water and if you have anything to help with collecting trash that would be awesome! We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to sign in and register.
Please be sure to join our iNaturalist project and upload all photos of fungi you find so we can keep track of what we see and understand the biodiversity located in the North Texas region!
