iNaturalist Mycoblitz!

The iNaturalist mycoblitz is a complementary event to our in-person Mushroom Festival. From October 20th through October 29th, all mushroom observations in Lane County that are uploaded to iNaturalist will be added to the project. Last year’s mycoblitz produced over 2,000 observations of mushrooms, with over 300 species with verified (research grade) identifications so far. A big thanks to Lane Community College and Cascade Mycological Society for facilitating the event! Check out the project webpage for more information!
