This event is free and open to the public. There will be a mushroom identification session. Bring what’s in your basket, edible or not, and learn from the experienced members of our community.
Molecular Biologist and community scientist Jack Johnson will share with us the more bizarre places fungi have made a living, in places you’d never imagine. Interspersed with some ecology, and a bit of slime mold anatomy. By the end of his presentation, everyone should have a running list of new places to look for fungi they might not have thought about.
Jack Johnson graduated from the University of Western Washington with a degree in molecular biology. He is a board member for the Northwest Mushroomers Association and volunteers for The Fungal Diversity Survey (FunDiS); assisting with the FUNDIS West Coast Rare Fungi Challenge and DNA sequencing. He is currently working with a grant from the Stuntz foundation sequencing novel fungi in the PNW.
