Urban Mushroom Hunt | Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx

Join the New York Mycological Society for a mushrooming exploration of Woodlawn Cemetery's 400 acres. We'll seek out and gather unusual --- but EDIBLE --- specimen of mushrooms. Get tips on what to look for underfoot and then share your findings with the group.

Registration: http://www.woodlawnconservancy.org/index.php?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/event/info&Itemid=177&id=3&reset=1

Read this fascinating article about the NYMS in Edible Manhattan: http://www.ediblemanhattan.com/magazine/november-december-2012/50-years-of-digging-for-mold/

I would advise to register online (it's only $5) (even though it's not mandatory) - send us your confirmation and we will put you as attending - As this is not a private tour and we will join other people on this hunt, let us know you are going.

Woodlawn Cemetery is a National Historic Landmark, and architecture jewel in its own right.

    That was interesting! It was a great hunt for Eric, he took home half of all the edible mushrooms from the whole place. I didn't find any, but learned a few things about mushrooms, first of all that the best place for me to hunt them is a supermarket.

      I am not sure if they are full already - you can try to buy a ticket on line, still, or show up and hope.

    The hunt departs from the Jerome Avenue entrance of The Woodlawn Cemetery, located at approximately 3700 Jerome Avenue (intersection of Jerome and Bainbridge Avenues).​ Closest subway is 4 Woodlawn (check the Weekender http://mta.info/weekender.html for service). See you there.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
