Why? Because mushrooms are the “flowers” of the fungal kingdom after all.
Featuring a kombucha tasting from American Cultures!
For fifty years mycologists at the Denver Botanic Gardens have been curating the largest and most important collection of Southern Rocky Mountain macrofungi (mushrooms and other fleshy fungi) in the world. This collection represents the diversity of mushrooms that grow in the diverse forests and other habitats from this region. As a result, mycologists and other researchers can learn how these organisms contribute to the conservation of plants and their habitats. Visit with Dr. Andrew Wilson, Assistant Curator of Mycology at the Denver Botanic Gardens to learn more about the world of mushrooms and the culmination of the 50th anniversary of the Sam Mitchel Herbarium of Fungi.
