March 18 and March 19, 2018 Winter Foray and Presentation: Led by Lawrence Millman
Author-mycologist Lawrence Millman has written 16 books, including such titles as Fascinating Fungi of New England, Last Places, A Kayak Full of Ghosts, Lost in the Arctic, Giant Polypores & Stoned Reindeer, and — most recently — At the End of the World. He has done fungal inventories in places as diverse as Iceland, Honduras, Nunavik, Bermuda, Belize, Western Samoa, and Nantucket island. In 2006, he found a polypore (Echinodontium ballouii) previously thought to be extinct. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
Lawrence Millman has given presentations about his travels in the Arctic at the Explorers Club, the University of Alaska, Alaska Pacific University, Cornell, Harvard, the Center for Northern Studies, on BBC and CBC Radio, on the Discovery Channel and National Public Radio, on Icelandic Radio, at Boston University, the New Brunswick Museum, the Appalachian Mountain Club, and over 100 other venues. He has lectured on cruise ships in the Canadian Arctic, Svalbard, Greenland, and Siberia.
