Saturday - Recognizing Important Poisonous and Edible Mushrooms (102)
03/03/18

ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE PSMS MEMBERS.
It is also highly recommended that you have previously taken the PSMS 101 class "Introduction to Mushrooms" or have equivalent knowledge about the fundamentals of mushroom ecology and identification. Please email Danny at education@psms.org with any questions.

An all day 102 "Recognizing Important Poisonous and Edible Mushrooms" Class will be held at the Center for Urban Horticulture, in the Douglas classroom (in the building attached to the greenhouse) on Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 10:00am-5:00pm. (3501 NE 41st St., Seattle)

Most people who join PSMS are interested in finding mushrooms to eat. However, there are many mushrooms that should not be eaten and it is important for the budding mycophagist to be able to recognize the bad ones as well as the good ones. In this full-day class, you will learn how to recognize the most important poisonous mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest, including those that can kill you, as well as a selection of the most popular edible species through independent research, poster-making, and interactive slide presentations. It is highly recommended that participants have previously taken the PSMS 101 class "Introduction to Mushrooms" or have equivalent knowledge about the fundamentals of mushroom ecology and identification.
 
Please bring a pack lunch for the day. Snacks, coffee, tee and juice will be provided.

The fee for this class is $50.00.

Introduction to Microscopy
03/17/18

ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE PSMS MEMBERS.

A Mushroom Microscopy Class for Beginners will be held at the Center for Urban Horticulture, in the Douglas classroom (found in the building attached to the greenhouse) on Saturday Marc. 17th, 2018 from 1:00pm-4:00pm. (3501 NE 41st St., Seattle)

The fee for this class is $25.00.

Are you ready to go beyond spore prints into the fascinating world of fungal microscopy? Microscope skills are essential for ID of many species, and the microscope offers views of stunning features and microstructures that help add confidence for ID of any species (plus, there are gorgeous sights to see such as the horned cystidia of Pluteus cervinus). With the long winter, we can keep enjoying mushrooms by working on dried collections from our fall collecting!

Classes will start at an introductory level and cover using equipment, basic lab techniques, spore viewing and measurement, key microscopic features, and sources of information that help you use your new powers for better identifcation of species of interest. Taught by Shannon Adams.
