Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
Times-Mirror Meeting Room
Speaker: Alissa Allen, founder of Mycopigments
Program: "Mushrooms and Lichens for Dyes: Making rainbows from fungi"
My talk will be an introduction to the full spectrum of permanent color that can be extracted from mushrooms and lichens found in California. I will touch on safety, ethical harvest, the dyeing process and identification of dye species. There will be lots of colorful slides, and dye examples on the display table. Visit for more information about mycopigment events and projects.
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.

Due to dry weather, no LAMS forays are currently scheduled.  LAMS members will receive an announcement of forays as soon as they are scheduled.
