South Vancouver Island Mycological Society Presents: SPRING FUNGI OF VANCOUVER ISLAND With Andy MacKinnon & Kem Luther April 28, 2022 6:45pm SVIMS – South Vancouver Island Mycological Society "In BC, mushrooms are most typically associated with the autumn, but springtime can bring its own fungal surprises. There are fewer mushrooms around in spring days-- inventories of mushrooms in this season report about a third as many species as autumn inventories. Still, spring-fruiting mushrooms can be just as exciting (and challenging) as the ones that come up in the autumn. Foragers are not left out in the spring—it’s the time for such popular edibles as oyster mushrooms and morels. This talk, which presents about two dozen spring mushrooms divided into ten different categories, will get you ready for forays in April and May, when you can enjoy both the spring flowers AND the spring mushrooms."
