Mycological Society: Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast

Author Christian Schwarz will be presenting from the book he co-authored with Noah Siegel, Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast. The book is an exhaustive reference to help readers (both beginning and experienced mushroom hunters alike)to find and identify mushrooms. Common and conspicuous species, delicious edibles, toxic and deadly species, and distinctive rarities are all covered in this user-friendly reference, which covers the diversity found in coastal California from Monterey County to the Oregon border.

Schwarz is a mushroom enthusiast, taxonomist, and citizen science advocate from Santa Cruz, California. He spends most of his time researching, teaching about, and photographing fungi.
