Fabulous Fall Fungi 2016
Session 1: Tues, Sept 29 (8 pm) to Fri, Oct 2 (4 pm)
Session 2: Tues, Oct 6 (8 pm) to Fri, Oct 9 (4 pm)
Now in its 6th year, this popular 3-day workshop explores the vast diversity of mushrooms and other fungi found in Southern Ontario. Suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. Activities include daily field trips to collect specimens, working in the classroom to identify our finds, and discussions on fungal ecology, natural history, and uses. There will also be one or more evening presentations, plus the opportunity to see a bioluminescent mushroom in action. If we find any edibles our cook is always amenable to cooking up samples for us to try. Participants will have access to a class set of field guides, 10x loupes, and an extensive collection of reference books.
Cost includes 3 nights accommodation, all meals, instruction, printed materials, and use of classroom. Small class size (max 12 students per session). Register early to avoid the waiting list that forms each year. Location: Queen’s University Biological Station. Details: events section at www.queensu.ca/qubs.
