Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate our natural world during the 12th annual Fungus Among Us Mushroom Festival.

This year’s turnout was the biggest yet. Over 175 keen folks were led into the woods by our 16 fungus gurus. It’s taken a couple of weeks to confirm what exactly was found, and we can now report 166 different types of mushrooms, 15 of which hadn’t been previously recorded in Whistler.

The total number of species known in Whistler is now comfortably over 800.

The Whistler Naturalists would thank our key sponsors: the Community Foundation of Whistler, AWARE, RMOW and Nesters Market for donating supplies for the mushroom tasting.

Special thanks also go to: Juliet Pendray and the Toadstool Troupe for their highly entertaining performance on fungal speed dating; Andy MacKinnon for his talk and fantastic fungal compilation - the “Fabulous Fungus Film Festival”; Kevin Trim for donating his fungus sculptures for our raffle; the fabulous mushroom gurus for leading the walks on Saturday and for the fungus display; gourmet chefs Paul Moran and Stephanie Noel for presenting the hugely popular cooking with mushrooms demonstration and tasting; the great group of volunteers who helped out and all the folks that came out to share their enthusiasm and wonder for all things fungal.

See you next year!
