Big Basin is home to many different species of fungi. Some look like our traditional pizza mushrooms, but others are wildly colored, strangely shaped, very small, smelly or slimy. Join Ranger Emily Bertram as she hunts for mushrooms. Learn the important role they play in the forest, who eats them and how to identify them. This is a family-friendly, easy 1.5-hour walk. (Picking mushrooms in a state park is illegal, so we’ll just be looking.) Meet at Headquarters. Event is free; vehicle day-use fee is $10
