Join Michael Scianamblo while he talks about the most commonly found mushrooms in Marin County and the Pacific Northwest. He will cover their phylogeny, basic characteristics, habitat and edibility. Emphasis will be given to those species that are the most collectible and desirable and where they can be found. In addition, a comparison will be made between those desirable species, their dangerous look-a-likes and how to avoid them.
The presentation is designed for both the experienced mycologist and the beginner.
