Intro to Field ID Course repeat session August 2019

Due to popular demand, the MST is pleased to announce a repeat session of 12 Easy Genera: An Introduction to Field Identification of Mushrooms​, on Monday, August 12th.

This popular course will be given by Kathy Vatcher. It focuses on common genera of gilled mushrooms, boletes and other fungi which can be identified fairly easily in the field. This is a general introduction to identification and does not specifically focus on edible species.

It will be held in the Garden Hall at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Doors will be open at 7:00pm for members who wish to bring in mushrooms for identification. This will be followed by a 2-hour presentation beginning at 7:30pm. There will be a short break for refreshments.

The course is available to MST members only and will be limited to 85 participants. The cost of the course is $10 per person and pre-registration is required. Please register by August 5th, 2019.

MST members may register on the course signup page. This course always fills up with a waiting list, so don't delay! For more information, please contact Kathy Vatcher at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
