Discover the Fungus Among-us Around Volcan Mountain, Wednesday, March 15th, 4:30pm, Julian Library

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 4:30pm

Wednesday, March 15th, at 4:30pm the Volcan Mountain Foundation, in partnership with the Julian Library (1850 Highway 78, Julian, CA 92036), will be hosting Elio Schaechter and Les Braund, Vice President of the San Diego Mycological Society for a fascinating fungus presentation.

Schaechter, a biologist and author of 'In the Company of Mushrooms', will talk about 'Mushrooms through Ages'. His style has been described as both 'learned, quirky and personal', as he 'imparts the fascinating minutiae of mushrooms' and the 'allure of the mushroom hunt'--the foray.

A variety of specific species of mushrooms identified during a foray around VMF's Volcan Mountain Nature Center will be featured, and attendees can be the first to sign up for a spring 'flash foray'--a 'flash mob'-type mushroom hunt--with the optimal foray conditions determining the date. You'll need to be ready on a few days' notice if you want to get out and hunt with the 'fun-guys' (and gals) from the San Diego Mycological Society!
