Mycology: The Magic of Mushrooms

2:00pm - 3:30pm

Mushrooms are a kind of fungus that usually look like umbrellas and grow in places like yards, forests, fields, and gardens.

Did you know?

– Because mushrooms are a fungus and not a plant, they don’t make their own food.
– They don’t even need sunlight to grow! Imagine what it would be like to live in the dark all the time!
– Mushrooms absorb the nutrients they need from the dead and rotting plants and animals where they live.
– Most of the fungus is actually growing underneath the ground which is beneficial to trees by sharing nutrients
– Mushrooms can help prevent cancer and are a great source of vitamin D.
