Explore the fascinating world of the kingdom Fungi with amateur mycologist Joanne Schwartz.

She will describe methods for locating and identifying wild mushrooms in Southern California and beyond, as well as understanding their place in nature – oaks, pines, orchids and more are dependent on fungal associations.

Hear tales of fungal folklore and consider eating and growing them.

Joanne will bring her collection of mushroom hunting gear and ID resources … and mushrooms too, if they are fruiting locally.

Her recent collecting has focused in the Redwoods and southern Sierra, as well as Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and throughout Orange County.

Her presentation will feature recent finds from these locations and others.
