SVIMS held its annual mushroom show November 6, 2022 at St. Luke’s Anglican Church. Over 25 volunteers supported 650 participants where about 140 mushroom species were observed. Despite the lack of rain, it was a beautiful day with an amazing show of mushrooms and enthusiasm.
Our crew of expert identifiers included Shannon Berch and the students from her training course. Everyone involved did a great job of tabling and labeling the mushrooms brought in from volunteers and the public. Unusual species include a vermilion polypore (Pycnoporus cinnabarinus, see below) and a stalked puffball.
See you October 29, 2023!
