Fungus 101 with Meg McCarthy
Saturday, Sept. 23, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
306 Mount Scio Rd.
Fungi and Flora – Friend or Foe? This introductory workshop will explore the role of fungi and lichen in our ecosystem and backyard gardens. We will dive into the anatomy of a mushroom and how it matters in proper identification, where and why fungus shows up in our garden, what types are beneficial or harmful, and take a walk to observe the specimens we have in the Botanical Garden. Please note this workshop will not focus on foraging or the edibility of wild mushrooms.
