Walk with Mycologist, Zaac Chaves
Fall Mushroom Walk with Mycologist, Zaac Chaves
Grab a notebook and join Zaac Chaves on a mycologically focused ecological
tour in Ridgefield. During this outing we will identify fall mushrooms. You
will help us catalog species (including possibly rare sightings) and even help
increasing evidence of climate change locally. No experience required. Zaac Chaves
works on species surveys for several sites and sometimes with organizations including
Harvard University, the New York Botanical Gardens, and the National Parks Service.
We have found several new species at many sites and are also helping recognize
others which are rare and disappearing. He also serves as the chief editor of
the Boston Mycological Club Bulletin, established in 1897.
