Lunch and Lecture: Getting Friendly with Fungi, Sunday, Sept. 29 from 11:30 a.m.- 1 p.m. Joanne Schwartz is an avid amateur mycologist, having studied fungi since the 1960s. She has collected and photographed fungi throughout the new and old world and has participated in field studies in Japan, Peru and Bolivia as well as the Redwoods of Coastal California. Always searching for fungi to study, photograph and identify, she is often found looking down while hiking. She is also an eager mycophagist (fungi eater) and prepares wild fungi for tasting and for the dinner table whenever possible. Explore the fascinating kingdom Fungi with Schwartz.  She will describe methods for locating and identifying wild mushrooms in Southern California and beyond, as well as understanding their place in nature – oaks, pines, orchids, and more are dependent of fungal associations. You will hear tales of fungal folklore and consider eating and growing them. She will bring her collection of mushroom hunting gear and ID resources...and mushrooms too, if they are fruiting locally.
