For their last foray of the year, SVIMS members met with speaker Daniel Winkler for a quick tour of the Pearson College path that runs along the inlet.
On the previous evening, December 5, Daniel presented a slide lecture on edible mushrooms in BC and the US Pacific Northwest. The talk was based on his new book, Fruits of the Forest.
About 40 different species were found and IDed on the foray. The list (and pictures) can be found on iNaturalist. The number and freshness of the fungal fructifications were amazing for the first week in December.
