Help learn about and document biodiversity of fungi in the Cape Perpetua area, using iNaturalist, with a passionate & knowledgeable guide.

Join your guide, Jamie, for a wonderful walk through oldgrowth forests of Cape Perpetua, where you will use iNaturalist to document species, while learning all about fungi basics!
