Exhibit Information

Mushrooms is traveling exhibit vividly portraying the intriguing lives and important roles of fungi in our environment. While the Fungi Kingdom includes more than one million species, this exhibit primarily focuses on the mushroom-producing fungi, but will include other fungi – including molds and yeasts – as well.

 

Mushrooms aims to increase awareness and appreciation of the incredible beauty, diversity and critical importance of mushroom producing-fungi in our environment. Through large, detailed photographs and supplemental materials, this exhibit introduces viewers to a wide range of mushroom- producing fungi (gilled, pored, jelly, etc.), and their valuable roles in the environment (saprophytic, symbiotic, etc.).

Exhibit Related Programs

With Mushrooms on display, the Museum will present mushroom related programs to further engage the community in this natural science wonder and inspire different audiences to participate. Programs include: A Weird Science movie night featuring the sci-fi flick Attack of the Mushroom People (1963) paired with a factual talk on the ill-effects of poisonous mushroom ingestion, a mushroom foraging hike led by local fungus experts, and an in-depth lecture about local fungi habitats paired with a sampling of deliciously prepared edible mushrooms
