“The Park District urges the public to be safe
and knowledgeable about toxic mushrooms when
encountering them in the parks,” said East Bay Regional
Park District Public Information Supervisor Dave
Mason. “Collecting mushrooms in East Bay Regional
Parks is not allowed.”
The death cap and Western destroying angel can also
be dangerous for pets.
“Dog owners should keep a close watch on their dogs
during the winter months,” said Mason. “Pet owners
should contact a veterinarian immediately if they suspect
their pet may have eaten a toxic mushroom.”
While the death cap and western destroying angel
mushrooms are responsible for most cases of mushroom
poisonings in California, deadly toxins can also be found
in Galerina and Lepiota mushroom species, both of
which are found in the Bay Area.
The public can learn more about the fungi of the East
Bay Regional Parks at the annual Tilden Fungus Fair,
Saturday and Sunday, January 25-26, 2020 at Tilden
Nature Area’s Environmental Education Center.
