Fantastic Fungi

February 5, 2017 from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Did you know there are over 14,000 varieties of mushrooms and over 3,000 in North America alone? 

Join the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County as we check out the varieties found at 782-acre Arroyo Hondo Preserve on the Gaviota Coast. We will spend the morning hunting for mushrooms with Dr. Bob Cummings, the foremost fungi expert for our county. Dr. Cummings is a Professor of Biology at Santa Barbara City College. He is a wonderful teacher and to walk with him in nature is always a delight.

Register early as the event always sells out.
