Mushroom ecology is a pivotal orientation point for exploring urban systems. Help us gather important data and spread knowledge about mushrooms by documenting their locations in your area. The Mushroom Mapping project is a collaborative effort between Columbia’s Urban Landscape Lab, Spatial Information Design Lab and StrataSpore.
