Lecture Tonight: The Many Ways to Be a Fungus (in Colorado)

by Jennifer Frazer on March 14, 2011

One organism: three kingdoms. Fnd out what they are, what they look like, and what this entire thing is tonight in Denver.

Tonight I’ll be giving another free lecture, this time at the Colorado Mycological Society meeting at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Doors open at 7:00 and the talk starts at 7:30 p.m.

Here’s the description I wrote:

Take an illustrated journey through the fungi of Colorado. We’ll cover what a fungus is, what the major divisions of fungi are, look at the fascinating microscopic characteristics and other markers of these groups, and admire photographic examples from our own beautiful state.

At the end of this lecture, you should have a better understanding of how a cup fungus and a mushroom are different in a very basic way, and be able to impress your friends with your rust, smut, and bunt knowledge. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert looking for a refresher, come get excited for the coming season, and learn how to spot fungi in the field beyond mushrooms!

Hope those of you in the area can make it!
