Click here to join this meeting virtually.
The membership meeting on October 11, 2022, will be both in-person at the Center for Urban Horticulture and virtual on Zoom. Please Note: This meeting will highlight our
upcoming Annual Show which will occur on October 22 - 23. This is an opportunity to get involved in the Club's annual fund raiser. This also represents an opportunity to
make new friends, learn more about mushrooms and to see what goes on behind the scenes in preparation for this annual event. Be a part of making the public aware of the
wonders of mushrooms and fungi. As we did in September's meeting, we will begin letting people into the meeting hall at about 6:30. At about 7:00 our Show Chair-people
will provide introductions and let you know how you can help, including picking up posters and cards advertising the event to the public.
October's Speaker will be Christian Schwarz. Christian Schwarz is a naturalist based in California, the land of milk (caps) and honey (mushrooms). He teaches Natural
History of Fungi at UC Santa Cruz, and co-authored "Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast". He now spends his time photographing, teaching about, collecting, and researching macrofungi.
Fungi satisfy his curiosity with their seemingly endless forms; from the grotesque to the bizarre to the sublime. Besides dabbling in mushroom taxonomy, he loves fish, plants,
nudibranchs, moths, and dragonflies. He is passionate about community science, especially iNaturalist. He is a Research Associate at the Norris Center for Natural History at UCSC
as well as the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.
Please attend, pick up posters and enjoy the evening with Christian and your fellow members.
