Last October I led a five-hour guided mushroom hike for the Sierra Club Of Canada. Just today the organizer sent me a photo from that outing. I have fond memories of that day since the people were so keen to learn. We also found some great stuff - including one species that was new to me! Since getting into fungi two decades ago, fall has become my favourite time of year (Sorry other seasons).
I'm still pinching myself. Due to increased interest this year there are going to be two sessions - Session 1 (Sept 30-Oct 3) and Session 2 (Oct 7-10). Each session serves up three days of learning about mushrooms in a beautiful, remote part of the province. What's not to like?
Here is the eye-catching poster which students in the 2012 workshop created from photos they took, showcasing a smorgasbord of sizes, shapes and colours. A full-size version hangs proudly in the Queen's University Biological Station (QUBS) dining hall. Hats off to workshop participant Donna Fano who conceived of and designed the poster.
