Annual Mushroom Fair

July 28, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am UTC-6


Join visiting fungi experts, Vera Evenson and Dr. Andrew Wilson, Curator and Assistant Curator at the Sam Mitchel Herbarium of Fungi, Denver Botanic Gardens, for an ACES Annual Mushroom Fair!  Learn all you ever wanted to know about mushrooms – a wide variety of specimens will be exhibited, identified and examined up close. Come prepared to look at various mushrooms under a microscope, make spore prints, and learn about their intricate ways and how important they are to the whole ecosystem. Participants are welcome to bring their own mushrooms to share and learn about. Head down to ACES for a fun filled afternoon learning about mushrooms – not to mention you’ll learn which mushrooms are the choice edible varieties!


Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to Hallam Lake as parking is very limited.

Join us for an in-depth 2-day field course with Vera and Andy on Thursday and Friday preceding the fair.
