This study aims to analyze the diversity of mushroom species in the watershed area of the TAHURA area of Palu City and to create a media poster regarding the types of fungi that exist in the river basin in the TAHURA area of Palu City that can be used in learning. This type of research is descriptive research. The method used in this research is the path method (Belt Transect). Sampling is divided into 3 stations in the TAHURA area of Palu City, along the river flow, 10 Belt Transects will be made and the distance between the transects is 20 m. Line length (Belt Transect) 100 m with a plot width of 2 x 2 m and a distance between plots of 2 m. The results found 16 species belonging to 2 divisions, where in the Basidiomycota division there are 15 types of mushrooms and in the Ascomycota division there is 1 type of fungus. medium category or the value of H '= 2.57. The results of the study were used as learning media in the form of posters about the diversity of mushroom species in the river basin area in the TAHURA area of Palu City, after going through validation by media validation lecturers and due diligence by 24 students who were divided into 2 groups, with a large group average score of 86, 8% and the small group 88.3%, the results obtained are classified as suitable for use as learning media.
