Members Meeting December 21st at 7:30pm
Please join us on Zoom this coming Monday, December 21st at 7:30pm for our online members meeting.
We hope that you are safe, happy and healthy this holiday season. Thank you for your patience with us while we figure out how to still have meaningful club activities online, and for doing your part to stop the spread of Covid-19. Seasons greetings and Happy New Year!
Presented by Sheila Mazur
This tree identification course was designed to help you identify some of the most common trees in Ontario that have relationships with fungi - both to help you find and identify mushrooms. The material was lovingly curated from government conservation websites and scans of long forgotten Arbor Day pamphlets, as well as things half remembered from a Grade 6 field trip. Using bark, leaves, environment and other unique attributes, you will learn how to find the following trees: apple, ash, aspen, beech, birch, cedar, elm, helmlock, maple, oak, pine and spruce.
Sheila Mazur doesn't have any fancy accreditation or letters after her name. What she does have is heart, and a genuine love and curiosity for the natural world around her. She is an amateur edible wilds enthusiast, and has been studying edible and medicinal plants for over 20 years. Sheila joined the MST by attending Pat Burchell's Mushroom ID course back in September 2016, and has been fascinated by fungi ever since. Oh, she's also the president too. We still don't know how that happened.
