We’re talkin’ Mushrooms!

February 18, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Mushrooms!!!

Mushrooms evoke images of folklore, fairytales and epicurean eating.   But mushrooms are so much more and are important actors on the global stage. Did you know that mushrooms are vital for healthy ecosystems, help maintain bio-diversity and are being used for medicines, soil amendments, vegan leather and more?

Come find out more about the versatile, impressive and fascinating world of mushrooms at this month’s illustrated talk, “Mushrooms and Their Many Uses.” The talk will be presented by Enrique Sanchez.

Mr. Sanchez has been an active member of the Mycological Society of San Francisco for 15 years.  A lifelong interest in herbs passed on by his grandmother led him to explore what else in the natural world could be beneficial for humans.  This curiosity led him to bio-dynamic farming, bee keeping and mushrooms. On Saturday, February 18 at 5 PM, he will tell us about the world of fungi, past, present and future.

After our beautiful rains, China Camp abounds with mushrooms and fungi.  Now is a great time to take a mushrooms walk on one of our many trails.  Look on the ground, on logs and in the tress above for these fascinating fungi.  They literally spring up over night!
