Fantastic Fungi: Wild Mushrooms in the BC Interior
Gary Hunt from the Kamloops Naturalist Club will present an information-rich session about our
local mushrooms. It will include questions such as:
– How do mushrooms benefit natural ecosystems?
– What are the most common mushrooms in our yards, gardens and forests?
– How can you tell a poisonous mushroom from an edible one?
– Where can we find edible mushrooms?
– What are BC’s deadliest mushrooms?
Bring your knowledge, curiosity and questions and you will leave with a renewed interest in exploring these fascinating organisms.
Gary Hunt is a mycologist and Professor Emeritus at Thompson River University where he taught in the Department of Natural Resources.
