The southern Appalachians are world-renowned for different types of fungi from mushrooms to lichens and are home to more than 2,000 species. Here’s a chance to observe many kinds of fungi at higher elevations and learn how to identify them by size, shape and color. This program is presented by Dr. Coleman McClenaghan.

This Adult Field Course is limited to 12 participants and costs $40 for general admission, $20 for Bridge Club members. To register, or for more information, email, or call (828) 733-2013.
