Mushroom Maynia

This past Sunday, the Burke Museum hosted the third annual Mushroom Maynia event. Fungi was the star of the day, with many activities that paid tribute to the roles mushrooms play in ecosystems, cultures and art. Mushroom Maynia attendees learned about mushrooms that are in the Burke Museum’s collections, as well as how to “hunt” for wild mushrooms. Visitors of all ages also got their faces painted, made mushroom crafts, and ate some delicious fungi treats!

Thanks to all who attended or helped make this third Mushroom Maynia a fun and memorable day!
