Fieldtrippers: Fungus Among Us

There are more than 3,000 different mushroom species in British Columbia. That’s more fungus diversity than anywhere else in Canada. Walk with us to nearby Beacon Hill Park where we’ll hunt for mushrooms with expert Andy MacKinnon, forest ecologist and co-author of Royal BC Museum’s best-selling handbook, Mushrooms of British Columbia.

This is not a harvesting expedition, but a fun, informal exploration of fungi!

Space is limited.

Be prepared for rain and uneven terrain.

Fungi Fest at the Royal BC Museum is a week-long series of events, films and lectures celebrating the launch of Fungi: Web of Life at IMAX® Victoria.
