What are the good edibles and the dangerously toxic fungi in Southwest BC? Come enjoy the mycelial musings of Dr. Kent Brothers, local mycologist and member of the Vancouver Mycological Society, and learn the basics of mushroom identification before the end of the season. Kent will answer many of your mushroom questions, including: What is a mushroom/fungus? How many kinds of fungi are there? and How do you tell if one is edible/toxic?
Kent will illustrate the edible & toxic fungi with photos and discuss how to differentiate look-alikes.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
