Jeff Chilton will talk about Mushroom Cultivation in China and elsewhere. The meeting will be available to SVIMS members who should receive a Zoom link within 24 hours of the meeting. An attempt will be made to provide longer term access to members eventually on this site. There will be 15-20 minutes meet-and-greet and then a short business meeting before the presentation. Learn more about Jeff Chilton below.
We have a not-to-be missed presentation coming up on Thursday, Mar 5, 2020, 7:00pm. Britt Bunyard, editor of Fungi Magazine, will be here for a presentation and foray. His talk will be “From Lowly Saprobe to Mycorrhizal Masters: Amanitas (A Tale Told in the DNA).”
See poster below for more information.
Those of you who have heard Britt before (he was here three years ago) will know how good his talks are. For many years, Britt has been a roving ambassador for serious (and sometimes funny) mycology.
The foray, led by Britt and Andy, will be at Metchosin’s Blinkhorn Lake, which is on Kangaroo Road. Note the time–it will be on Saturday, March 7, from 1 to 3 pm.
We’ve all got ’em. Endophytes.
They’re the silent partners of all life, the bacteria and fungi that live quietly between (and sometimes inside) the cell walls of plants, animals, and other fungi.
Come to the SVIMS meeting on Thursday, February 6, and hear the Pacific Forestry Centre’s own Joey Tanney spill the beans on the secret world of endophytic fungi.
She brought along samples of several different lichens so that the audience could analyze them.
On Saturday, Juliet led a lichen-and-everything walk in Metchosin’s Devonian CRD Park.
Pippi Lawn participates in the sport of Lichen Licking. The Lichen liked it. Pippi not so much.
