March 2020 Meeting
Monday, March 16th at 7:30 p.m.
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Speaker: Christian Schwarz
Program: "The Most Dangerous Fungi in the World"
Assessing risk is one of the most important things we do as humans, and mycology is no  exception. Distinguishing the poisonous from the delicious is square one for beginning mushroom hunters. But what if we're almost completely ignoring the world's truly dangerous fungi? We'll take a tour of candidates for this category, exploring our blind spots, discussing problems of scale, and thinking together about how to move forward as a civilization.
