November 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join mycologist Bill Bakaitis for this virtual illustrated lecture on the diversity of Amanita species of mushrooms found in the Northeast including in and around the Hudson Valley. This large confusing genus of fungi contains some of the most toxic species of mushrooms in the world and is responsible for roughly 95% of all mushroom poisoning fatalities. This online presentation will highlight the diversity and number of local species and how to identify them using observable field characteristics. Registrants will receive a packet of information to be used to help create a personal field guide. Registration is required and a link to the presentation will be sent out with the confirmation email. All ages and knowledge levels are welcome to this free webinar.
