December 2019 Meeting
Monday, December 16th at 7:30 p.m.
Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Speaker: Thea Chesney
Program: "Mushrooming in the Sierra Nevada (and Beyond)"
From snowbanks in early spring to meadows at the peak of summer to the foothills in fall and winter, California's mountains hold many distinct habitats, and wonderful mushroom diversity throughout the seasons. This talk will introduce some of the specialized habitats and the curious mushrooms that call them home. Thea will also include a basic introduction to mushroom ecology, discuss the limits of our knowledge of montane fungi, and encourage folks to help with citizen science efforts to document what's out there.
