This month we welcome our recently appointed Scientific Advisor, Dr. Steve Trudell. The topic of his presentation is: "Getting to Know the Genus Tricholoma."
Most tricholomas are relatively large, showy forest mushrooms that attract the attention of mushroom hunters. Only a few are popular edibles, but tricholomas also have great ecological importance due to their mycorrhizal associations with many of the dominant temperate forest tree species. Unfortunately, when trying to identify Tricholoma species, probably every Northwest field mycologist has struggled. However, with the recent release of "Tricholomas of North America: A Mushroom Field Guide," identifiers should have more success.
Come meet Steve and learn what makes a tricholoma a tricholoma, why identification problems still exist, and meet a number of our Northwest species.
Doors open at 6:30pm.
