The Strange World of Fungi

March 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and Teta Kain for a program on the strange world of fungi.  Did you know that the southeastern United States has the greatest variety of poisonous mushrooms of any place in the world? Virginia is home to a bewildering variety of mushrooms, bracket fungus, slimes, jellies, cupsthe list goes on and on. Teta gets up close and personal with them, often lying flat on the ground to get a different perspective of these strange growths that spring up overnight in field, forest, lawn, garden, and just about any other place you can think of. She has amassed many stories about how people relate to fungus, how they get their strange names, whether they are edible, and what other uses they might have. She tells us that she is not an expert, but loves to photograph and study fungi, but she warns: “Don’t eat my identifications!”
