MST at Nerd Nite Toronto, April 14th

The MST is coming to Nerd Nite!

Program Director Michael Warnock will be presenting on Thursday Apr. 14th at Nerd Nite Toronto on "Mushrooms & Video Games".

Nerd Nite is a fun monthly pub lecture series held in more than 90 cities across the world. In their words, it's 'Like the Discovery Channel… with beer!'

Let's get as many members as possible to this event, and introduce some nerds to the world of mycology. Come out, learn, have some fun, and support the MST! There will be lots of MST promotional buttons and stickers to take home, too.

The Tranzac Club, 292 Brunswick Ave. at Bloor, Toronto. Doors at 7pm, $5.

Annual General Meeting coming up on April 25th

The April 25th meeting is the MST's Annual General Meeting. At the AGM, the business of the previous year is reviewed, resolutions for the upcoming year are decided, and MST members elect the incoming Board of Directors.

The society has many more members than this time last year, and all members have a voice and a vote - so if you're interested in influencing the activities and the future direction of the MST, please attend! 

As always, MST meetings are held at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, located at the southwest corner of Leslie St. and Lawrence Ave. East in Toronto, at 7:45pm. 

Copies of George Barron's recently-reprinted field guide Mushrooms of Ontario and Eastern Canada will be on sale at the meeting. This is the MST's recommended field guide for Ontario and has been very hard to find in past years. We'll also have MST whistles, stickers and buttons available!
