Mycological Society: Basics of Mushroom Identification

Wednesday, December 19th | 7:15pm

Kingman Bond-Graham discovered the incredibly vast world of fungi at the age of 10. While playing on his family property in Mendocino County, he noticed thousands of mushrooms. After crafting a science project for school, he continued with his fungi fascination into adulthood. Kingman has been collecting and studying the mushrooms of Sonoma, Mendocino, and Marin Counties for most of his life.

Bond-Graham’s interest is both culinary and scientific. His talk will discuss when, where, and how to look for mushrooms and what to do with mushrooms when you find them. He will also emphasize how citizen scientists can contribute to the world of mycology through their hobby. Kingman is President of the Sonoma County Mycological Association.

Doors open for the Marin Mycological Society’s meeting at 6:30pm, followed by the mushroom talk at 7:15pm.

Presented by the Mycological Society of Marin County.
