Come learn the basics for identifying fleshy fungi (including mushrooms), their important role in the ecosystem, and a brief overview of the fungal kingdom. Rocky Mountain National Park has some unique and pristine ecosystems that we will explore, including the areas near snowbanks. We will spend a good part of the day in the field, identifying mushrooms and other fungi, and gaining a first-hand appreciation of these interesting and important organisms. There will be particular emphasis on the Cup Fungi (ascomycetes), including Morels and their allies. ♦♦ CSM credit available Meets at the Rocky Mountain Conservancy Field Institute
