David Rose (Archivist, Program Chair of the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association) and Britt Bunyard (Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Fungi journal) walk attendees through the mushrooms gathered during a morning foray near Tivoli Bays.

John Cage was an enthusiastic mycologist who expressed his interest in fungi in his music, his text compositions, and his visual art works, as well as in his lifelong mushroom collecting and identification activities. Organized by the John Cage Trust, John Cage Mycology Day, was a one-day event, featuring a mushroom walk and afternoon presentations, that celebrate Cage's passion for mushrooms and his multifarious contributions to mycology.
