Fungi Scavenger Hunt

Explore a small forest to find and learn about four different types of mushrooms. See if you can discover the amantia, chanterelle, shiitake, and portobello species! Meanwhile, discover the understated but hugely important role that fungi fulfill in an ecosystem. You will learn that, as decomposers, fungi are essential to the transfer of nutrients in an environment. Or if you prefer just to relax in the peaceful and misty forest world in VR, relaxing by the small waterfall or resting at the picnic table in the shade, that's just fine too! We designed this experience to be a relaxing place to enter and wander around, especially in VR, while discovering hidden facts about fungi. Please explore our fun fungi hunt!
