Myco-Consortium Talks

In 2022 the MST joined forces with a group of mycological clubs across North America. These clubs all have access to the same live Zoom talks on everything fungi.

Myco-Consortium talks usually run every second Thursday evening through the spring. Most talks are recorded and links are posted on this page so that they can be viewed at a later date. MST members have access to all the recordings and the live Zoom talks.

Myco-Consortium talks are a benefit included with MST membership, in addition to the MST's own members-only Speaker Series talks which run through the winter

Video links of past talks are below for members who are signed in.
