Did you know that fungi can eat plastic, clean up oil spills, hunt for prey, and enable trees to talk to each other?

Join mycology educator, macro photographer, and author Meg Madden on a mushroom curiosity walk to learn more about the lives of these fascinating organisms! We’ll explore the woods and talk about the mushrooms we find along the way. 

From building soil to connecting trees, we will learn about the essential roles that fungi play within their natural communities, as well as some of the unique ways fungi can help us navigate our way in a more planet-friendly manner. Meg will also discuss the importance of community science, how you can contribute to Vermont’s growing database of fungi species on iNaturalist, and share tips and tricks for taking scientific grade mushroom photos.
