September 29: Mushroom lecture and walk with Lawrence Millman
Without fungi, the world would be hardly more than a garbage heap. Lawrence Millman will give a presentation on the ecological role of fungi and why we can't live without them. Did you know that certain bracket fungi are among the world's best recyclers? He'll also talk about species you're likely to find on a typical fall walk in New England, along with some of the weirder species you might see. Please note that neither this talk or the following walk will focus on edibles!
A WALK IN THE WILD
This will perhaps be the slowest walk you'll ever take, as mycologist Lawrence Millman will be showing you that virtually everything in the woods can be a fungal habitat. You'll learn that you don't look for mushrooms, you look for mushroom habitats, and then -- with luck -- you'll find mushrooms. You'll also learn about diagnostic features that will help you identify particular species. Please bring a hand lens (if you have one), the appropriate footwear, and -- most important of all -- a sense of adventure. (Note: This walk is limited to 18 people.)
Author-mycologist Lawrence Millman has written 15 books, including such title as Last Places, An Evening Among Headhunters, Lost in the Arctic, and -- most recently -- Hiking to Siberia. His book Fascinating Fungi of New England is the first ever guidebook to the mushrooms of our region -- it'll be on sale before and after his presentation. He keeps a post office book in Cambridge, MA.
