Macrofungi - The Basics of Mushrooms with Jay Justice, Mycologist
Thursday, April 16, 2020 1pm Eastern
For many mushrooms, lichen, fungi are exotic forest species. For the amateur they are difficult to recognize by name while for those seeking to harvest them identification is overwhelming. Unlike traditional herbs and plants that can be grown from seed, studied in botanical gardens, and readily studied in books mushroom knowledge can be difficult to cultivate. They appear at intermittent times in the forest requiring a delicate balance of weather, mycrosoza in the soil, and an underground relationship with other organisms. Where to begin? Join us on April 16th at 1pm EDT for “Macrofungi – The Basics of Mushrooms” with Jay Justice co-founder of the Arkansas Mycological Society.
