Tuesday evening at 7:30 at Hobbs memorial Library, Lovell, ME
Join experienced mycologist Dr. Rick Van de Poll for a colorful, photographic tour of the fantastic (and infamous) fungi of western Maine. Dive into the microscopic world of fungal growth and development, meet up with mycelium and mycorrhiza, and learn how to separate the edible from the poisonous, the common from the rare, as well as how to prepare mushrooms for winter consumption long after they have retreated underground. This slideshow presentation will infect the beginner and the practiced amateur with fun-filled facts about our most mysterious kingdom of organisms on the planet. There will also be a review of the collections from Parker Veitch’s morning mushroom foray.
