Mushroom Workshop for Beginners
Friday, September 20, 2013
This all-day workshop will focus on developing your fungal identification skills. The morning will begin with an informative guided walk where you will become acquainted with the fungal diversity to be found in the wooded areas of the Arboretum. We will then visit several areas to collect specimens for later identification. The afternoon will be devoted to identifying our myriad finds in the classroom. In addition, there will be discussions on topics ranging from the crucial roles mushrooms play in the environment to cool natural history facts and intriguing scientific names. Each person will be provided with a checklist to record the day's finds and a list of suggested resources. Field guides and magnifiers will be available for use, but feel free to bring your own. Guest Instructor: Richard Aaron.
