Our first in-person Mushroom Festival in two years went off without a hitch! The 1200 attendees got to enjoy viewing 385 species of mushrooms on display, curated by Lane Community College and Cascade Mycological Society, and enjoyed live performances, great food, and local arts and crafts vendors. We hope to be back bigger next year!

The Mushroom Festival is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Ticket sales and purchases at the festival support our work in native habitat stewardship and outdoor environmental education.

iNaturalist Mycoblitz!

The iNaturalist mycoblitz produced some fantastic results! This ancillary event to our in-person Mushroom Show produced over 2,000 observations of mushrooms, with nearly 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!
