[VIDEO] New York Botanical Garden Shows You How to Make Mushroom Spore Prints

Fall is the perfect season for kids to discover the beauty of fungus. Mushrooms can make for great art projects, and it's as easy as buying some from the supermarket. Join Arvolyn Hill, Family Programs Coordinator for our Everett Children's Adventure Garden, as she investigates mushrooms growing on branches in her local woodland. Then head inside to learn how to make spore prints at home—from the same white button and portobello mushrooms you find in the produce section.
