This is all over in my garden bed and has a very invasive root system. I am wondering if it’s beneficial or if I need to eradicate it!

Yes, you have growing and reproducing in your garden one of the more beneficial fungi named Bird Nest Fungi. Those roots you see are not roots, they are sort of like a tether to those egg looking things which will shoot up into the air spreading their spores. As with most fungi this one only affects dead organic matter and is great to have around.

You can use this as organic waste compost. Its heavy bark mulch is especially helpful this helps to reduce large chunks. This fungus does not harm any plant.
