Join us to hunt for mushrooms and learn about this incredible fungi. Mushrooms can be found throughout Florida's woodlands and serve special functions to our ecosystems and forests. The visible mushrooms are the fruit of an intricate underground network that communicates between the fungi, trees and ecosystem like a nature internet.
