Polls close Saturday, May 7 at 11:59pm.
California has a state bird, state flower, state animal, even a state lichen, but not a state mushroom! Given California’s wealth of natural resources and the essential role mushrooms play in maintaining our biodiversity, it is time California had a State Mushroom!
Mycologists, mushroom societies, and other fungus lovers from around the state have identified six mushrooms that would best represent our wondrous state. Now we need the public’s help. All California residents are invited to vote for their favorite mushroom. The winning selection will be taken to the State Legislature to make it official.
This is important. Mushrooms have a central role in California’s ecology and deserve recognition of their contributions. Selection of a CA State Mushroom will help increase awareness of and funding for preservation of mushroom habitat and natural resources. This is the first step in a fun(gi) journey.
Vote now and spread the news with all your friends, family, and myco-groups.
