Healthy Soils, Healthy Trees

Healthy Soils, Healthy Trees is a community science and art initiative exploring the connections between soil health, urban forests and mycology in Central Texas. Organized by Central Texas Mycological Society in partnership with Ecology Action of Texas, the project will activate the Myco Research Station at Circle Acres Preserve with hands-on workshops, public art, and a community science effort to investigate the role fungi play in soil and forest health.

The goal of the program is to foster stewardship and learning about urban forestry and mycology and to better understand the benefits of fungi for Austin’s urban forest.
