We had a most successful workshop with Fred Rhodes April 12-14. For those of you who attended the general meeting at Gardiner, Fred Rhodes’ “Mushrooms in 3D” was an excellent introduction to the season.
The two day class at the Dungeness River Audubon Center focused on learning how to use keys and computer software to identify mushrooms. Danny Miller will continue that process with us on May 3 when we will host him for an all day class at the Dungeness River Audubon Center. There should be many more mushrooms out by then!
There are still a few openings if you would like to sign up for the class. Participation in Fred’s Workshop, or some knowledge of using keys for mushroom identification are prerequisites for this class. Fee for the class will be $25, due via paypal OR check made out to OPMS. If you have any questions, contact me, or Marty Muschinske at firstname.lastname@example.org
I had announced at the April 12th General Meeting in Gardiner that we would be cancelling the May 10th general meeting because of the number of events in May (Danny Miller’s class and Camp Dudley outing). HOWEVER, several of us would like to share the new skills we are learning using simple keys to identify mushrooms. Please bring mushrooms that you find and participate in a group identification workshop. Bring your favorite Mushroom Identification book
Doors open May 10th 6:30 PM in Gardiner. Bring food to share if you like!
Note: The May 19th Mushroom Count has been postponed until Fall.
Camp Dudley is Happening! Steve Trudell, Author of Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest will be our guest mycologist. May still be openings! Emerald Keyte is organizing this event.
