Mushrooms of Nova Scotia -
A Field Guide for Kids

Fungi are super cool critters. We love going for mushroom walks at the YNC, but with a dwindling number of old-school naturalist experts to guide us and very few kid-focused resources available, we have often had trouble fully engaging in the diversity of fungi around us. So! In the summer of 2022, with the support of Nature Canada’s Naturehood program and the help of the awesome people at the Nova Scotia Mycological Society and Saint Mary’s University undergrad student MacKenzie Foster, we set out to create a kid- and family-friendly field guide that doubled as an activity booklet to educate and entertain newbie mushroom enthusiasts. This is that guide! We hope it helps your family get out and explore your “naturehood!”
