Program Type:Science & Nature
This program delves into a new guide that offers expert scientific information for the non-scientist, focusing on the wild mushrooms that are native to the Appalachian mountain range and surrounding foothills.
Discover the rich variety of fleshy fungi in America's oldest hill country! Learn how this guide works, and its utility for hikers, campers, park rangers, ecologists, and naturalists. Books will also be available for sale/signing.
Our guest speaker is Walter E. Sturgeon, a professional field mycologist and author of Appalachian Mushrooms: A Field Guide, newly published by Ohio University Press.
