Mushrooms in Mitchell Hall

(Amanita by Alexander Viazmensky)
Mitchell Hall on Sunday, August 17 from 11 am to 5 pm.
Freshly collected mushrooms of amazing colors and shapes are brought in to the Fair where they are identified, admired, and put out for display. Edible, poisonous, and ecologically important mushrooms are found in all parts of Colorado, from the prairies to the tundra. Additionally there are booths featuring natural displays, cultivation of mushrooms, books, artwork, paper making, etc. Admission into Mitchell Hall is free once you are in the Gardens.

While visiting the Botanical Illustration Program Viazmensky will also talk about Russian mushroom hunting in Cafe Botanique.
