Our friends at Ontario Nature have announced a new photo contest, and MST members (and the public) with an interest in photography are encouraged to submit their best images.
More details will appear on the Ontario Nature blog closer to the date.
Fall has arrived and so has Ontario Nature’s Fantastic Fungi Photo Contest! Share your top two (that's right, two only) images with us on Twitter or Facebook for a chance to win a great prize.
Share your images on Twitter or Facebook. A winner will be chosen on both channels.
Here’s how you can enter:
- Twitter: Follow and tweet your submission to us using our handle @ontarionature and the hashtag #ONfungi
- Facebook: Like our Ontario Nature Facebook page and share your photo with us using the hashtag #ONfungi
The contest will run from September 23 to October 14. Winners will be announced on Twitter and Facebook.
Each winner will receive the following:
- Firefly Books - for the prize donation
- Mycological Society of Toronto - for assistance with promotion and species identification.
The MST's 2015 fall foray schedule has been finalized and is posted on the foray schedule page. There are 14 forays from September 9th to October 25th.
MST members whose membership dues are up to date will also receive the foray schedule by email - check your spam or junk mail folders. The event calendar has also been updated with all the fall forays.
MST members may sign in with their username and password to see driving directions on the foray schedule page. Also available to members is a map with all MST foray locations marked.
In the MST's January 2014 Mycelium newsletter, Jan Thornhill wrote about Wagner and Mätzler's investigation into a fungal origin of the mysterious "hair ice", but at that time the connection was unproven. Research published today by Hofmann, Preuss and Mätzler now identifies the species responsible for hair ice as Exidiopsis effusa.
