Fun with Fungus Fundamentals, Part 1


A playful introduction to the awesomely strange, wonderful, and utterly essential world of the fungi. This class will be based on slides and collected specimens to prepare us for upcoming field days on February 3rd and 17th (choose either or both). Participants will learn about the major types of fungi, how to identify them, how to make a spore print, best practices for collecting, safety considerations, and more. Each class may be taken individually, but pairing the two class parts is highly recommended.
