Mysterious Mushrooms

They’re all so different…and weird!  The fungus among us are more than meets the eye, with some acting as decomposers, some working with tree roots, and some parasitic, even of other fungus!  Learn about their jobs and how they’re used in industry and medicine, then go exploring the park with our scavenger hunt to see what you find!  Please no harvesting, but have your camera ready and we’ll answer any questions we can!  Kids can make clay mushrooms to take home.  Part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series. Registration and masks required. Meet at the Blackstone Park kiosk, by Parkside Road & East Orchard Avenue, Providence, RI 02906.
