Talk on the art and science of eating wild mushrooms

A message from the Metchosin Biodiversity Project.

Each year in November the Metchosin Talk and Walk series partners with the Metchosin MycoBlitz to bring you an outstanding presentation on local mushrooms. This year we have the privilege of hosting Dr. Denis Benjamin. This Texas physician is one of North America’s authorities on mushroom toxins. His talk, though, is not technical–it is a broad look at issues and experiences around using wild mushrooms as a food source. We had Dr. Benjamin with us several years ago and audiences were delighted at his talks.

If you can, join us on Saturday for a mushroom foray with Dr. Benjamin and other local experts. Mushrooms are popping up all over Metchosin now.

More information on the weekend at the Metchosin Biodiversity website.
