Mushroom Quest

Carolina Beach State Park 1010 State Park Road Carolina Beach NC 28428

This weekend event encourages you to get outside to learn more about fungi's role in our local ecosystems. Join an aquarium educator and members of The Wilmington Mushroom Club for an easy hike in Carolina Beach State Park. You'll learn what fungi are, why they're important, what kinds are local, and how to report your mushroom observations to contribute to a worldwide body of community based scientific knowledge. 


Please sign up for one of our two free scheduled hikes. The trail is one mile long and suitable for all ages. Please e-mail program coordinator Leah Hernandez at for any accessibility requests or difficulty getting a group registered together.
