Citizen Science Sky Island Fungi Survey
Under the leadership of Science Committee Chair, Terri Clements, we are teaming up with University of Arizona Professor Betsy Arnold to complete a fungal survey of the Santa Rita Mountains to support a National Science Foundation grant and provide YOU the opportunity to learn or brush up on some myco skills!
This is a unique educational opportunity to learn from our local researchers leading the study of our native mycoflora in unique “sky island” habitats of southern Arizona. Sky Islands are isolated mountain ranges in southeastern Arizona and northern Mexico. Some of the mountains rise more than 6,000 feet above the surrounding desert floor making the high peaks drastically different with unique habitats that are home to only partially known populations of fungi.
