MAW Monthly Meeting: February

  • 04 Feb 2020
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Kensington Park Library: 4201 Knowles Ave, Kensington, MD 20895

We're back!  It's February, and although it's cold outside, it's time to start thinking about mushrooms again.  This year we're starting things off right with a lecture about crust fungi with Tom Bigelow, president of the New York Mycological Society.

If you don't know what a crust fungus is, then obviously this is the lecture for you.  I can guarantee - virtually guarantee - that every time you take a walk in the woods, you see crust fungi.  They're ubiquitous, and if you attend this lecture, you'll soon know why.

We're also going to learn a little about the Tibetan medicinal mushroom Yartsa Gunbu (Ophiocordyceps sinensis), which reportably cures your yin; your yang; and most everything else that ails you.  And as if that weren't enough, we're going to have a hen of he woods tasting.  Come out and join us, this is going to be a fun evening.

If you're interested in a carpool, as a driver or passenger, please see this link.
