When you step into the world of fungi, you find questions and phenomena far beyond the mushrooms (fruiting bodies of fungi) that we witness growing above the soil. Did you know that the surface of our bodies host over 80 types of fungi? That fungi release spores that form raindrops in the atmosphere? Or that an entire forest of trees are connected to each other through enormous underground networks of fungi? Come enjoy the mycelial musings of Dr. Kent Brothers, local mycologist and past president of the Vancouver Mycological Society, and learn about what makes fungi unique, what you need to know to collect wild mushrooms for food, and more.

Terms and conditions
(1) Cancellation policy – We refund cancellations due to illness to keep everyone healthy, but the number of recent cancellations is impacting our capacity to run these programs. If you must cancel, please let us know if you need a refund or if you are able to help us offer affordable programs for the public by donating your registration fee. (This is one way we can all subsidize programs in this changing economic climate and ensure these programs are available on a sliding scale.)
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.
