PSMS Monthly Meeting

Hunting Mushrooms in the PNW

Doors open at 6:30 pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture.

Our presentation for November will be given by someone well known in PSMS, Marian Maxwell, who will share with us her vast experience on "Hunting Mushrooms in the Pacifc Northwest." Learn how to explore the outdoors by foraging for our favorite northwest resource - mushrooms! Learn the basics, including seasons for mushroom hunting, permits required, types of mushrooms to look for, cooking, dangers, and where to hunt.

Marian Maxwell studied mycology under the renowned Dr. Daniel Stuntz, co-founder of PSMS, and received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Washington. Besides serving as president of PSMS from 2010-2015 and chairing the display of mushrooms for the annual exhibit, she has served as an identifer and educator for over 20 years. She is passionate about sharing and educating people about the role of fungi in the environment.
