BC’s Marvellous Mushrooms Travelling Exhibition

May 30 to September 2 at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum

The North Peace Historical Society & Fort St. John North Peace Museum are pleased to announce that we are hosting the exhibition, BC’s Marvellous Mushrooms, from the Royal BC Museum from June 1 to September 2, 2024.

Learn more about BC mushrooms and their versality through a cross-section of different species—some familiar, some bizarre, some delicious and some deadly. These mushrooms are interwoven with every part of British Columbia ecosystems.

Mushrooms are not only a subject of scientific study but also a source of food, dyes, and medicine; and objects of ceremony and beauty. This exhibition delves into the many facets of these fabulous fungi.

Featuring interpretive graphic panels, 3D- printed mushroom models and foraging equipment, the exhibition facilitates visitors’ understanding of BC mushrooms and their many uses. This exhibition is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
