CHS September Meeting: Fabulous Fungi~Intro to Mycology
September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
“Fabulous Fungi: Intro to Mycology” will be presented by David Hawke, a local naturalist and a bit of a “fun guy” himself. During this session he will share with you the roles that are performed within our ecosystem by mushrooms, toadstools, slime molds and other seemingly icky things. Identification features and how mushroom guides are arranged will be discussed. Please note that this is not a “can I eat it?” presentation (although poisonous mushrooms will certainly be mentioned).
David Hawke is a naturalist, photographer, writer, speaker, and a land steward. He started his career in outdoor education at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre (Midland) and continued at the Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area (Elmvale).
For several years David was an Eco-tourism Manager with local resorts: Bayview-Wildwood on Sparrow Lake, and Taboo Resort in Gravenhurst. Recently he was with the Couchiching Conservancy land trust, in the position of Property Manager. Currently he is with the MTM Conservation Association overseeing the removal of Common Reed from the Tiny Marsh wetland.
When not busy with outdoor work, David authors a weekly nature column which can be read at the website OrilliaMatters.com.
