Introducing Aspen, our mushroom-loving forest friend.

Welcome to Aspen’s Corner, where we explore the connection between mushrooms and our woods and forests.

Leading the charge is Aspen, our Woodie friend. 

Think of him as our mascot. Everything about that cute face of his expresses a deep connection to the woods, forests, mushrooms, and fungi.

As for Aspen’s origin story, he comes from a very large family of other “Woodies”. We adopted him because he looks like such a perfect fit for our own mission here at Incredible Mushrooms. You can learn more about Woodies here. You can even get one of your own! 

We’re happy to support the Woodies project because, within just days of their launch, they donated over $250,000 to Trees for the Future

And as you know, the health of our trees, mushrooms and fungi are all closely intertwined. Anyone who supports planting trees and taking better care of our woods and forests gets our support too.

Aspen is new to the team here. (We’re going to pretend he’s real!) Over time we’ll figure out some cool stuff for him to do.  

In the meantime, while he settles in and finds his feet, here are the pages he’d like you to read next…
