October 2020 Meeting
Monday, October 19th at 7:30 p.m.
Online meeting using Zoom
Speaker: Denis R Benjamin, MD
Program: "Mushroom Edibility; Myths and Misunderstandings"
This presentation reviews how we learn about which mushrooms are edible and which might harm us. We then explore some of the more common myths about toxic mushrooms, including recently indicted species such as angel wings, man-on-horseback, the neurological effects of morel gluttony, the inherent dangers of foraging and others.

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.
