NorthWoods Stewardship Center Offering Fungi Presentation

In collaboration with the Old Stone House Museum, The Northwoods Stewardship Center in East Charleston is hosting Lawrence Millman's presentation Fungi Presentation: A Painless Introduction to Polypores on Friday, March 21, from 7:30-9 p.m. Polypores are among the most interesting of all fungi. Some polypores can live for 70 years, some smell like anise, and there's one that can tip the scales at 300 pounds. They're also a vibrant part of the ecosystem- without them, the world would be virtually unrecognizable. Come to this event, and learn to celebrate these denizens of the New England forests.

The next day, Saturday, March 22, the Northwoods Stewardship Center is hosting Millman's Fungi Presentation: Winter Mushroom Walk from 1-4 p.m. Contrary to popular belief, not all mushrooms go south for the winter. Many thrive under logs. Others can freeze and rehydrate several times. Still others survive by undergoing the fungal equivalent of hibernating. On this winter mushroom walk, you might find as many as 50 different fungal species. Be prepared with snowshoes and warm layers. Extra snowshoes are available. Register by March 15.
