October 2019 Meeting
Monday, October 21st at 7:30 p.m.
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Speaker: Dr. Matt Trappe
Program: "The Inner Beauty of Molds"
Dr. Matt Trappe is a mycologist who started out specializing in truffles, took a detour into plant pathology, and ended up moldy like an old piece of fruit. He will share his enthusiasm for conidiophores, secondary metabolites, and Japanese food with the hope that you too will come to appreciate the inner beauty of molds!
LAMS is a non-profit group whose purpose is to foster and expand the understanding and appreciation of mycology (that is the study of mushrooms and fungi).
We create and sponsor fun mushroom related events and help people learn about and identify mushrooms they find in the greater Los Angeles area.
More information about LAMS events is available on the Calendar page.
LAMS members will receive an announcement of forays as soon as they are scheduled.
