This talk is about Lactarius, primarily Midwest and East Coast species but folding in the entire genus. Leon Shernoff, editor of Mushroom the Journal, makes delightful forays into the history and language of fungi. The talk was delivered June 2021 to the Northwest Mushroomers Association of Whatcom Country, Washington.
A talk given by Jack Waytz given to Northwest Mushroomers Association in April 2021. Jack dives into the habits and habitats associated with finding springtime fungi. "To give yourself the best possible chance of finding spring mushrooms, and indeed fall mushrooms as well, become as intimately familiar as you can with associated trees and understory vegetation with each desired mushroom species. Note elevation, fruiting densities, and the dates of your findings. Since these fruitings are weather driven, I have found it helpful to chart weather conditions throughout the year and run them against a graph of foray dates and finds. As I mention in this talk, the devil is in the details. The more environmental factors that you can recognize, the better your chances of being in the right place at the right time for successful foraging!"
Dr Fred Rhoades presents to members of the Northwest Mushroomers Association (Whatcom, Skagit and parts of Island Counties) on Oct., 8, 2020. This informative one-hour talk features a selection of macrophotographic and other views of Northwest mushrooms and their friends in mushroom habitats. We zoom into the world of mushrooms to look at some of their diagnostic features up close.
