Learn about marvelous Missouri mushrooms

Posted By  | On 0 Comments

Fall mushrooms can form the beginning of a circle, emerging from the remains of a long-gone tree, even in your own yard.

Mushrooms can be beautiful to observe and with care choosing the safe ones, tasty to eat.

From 7-8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 4, Jay Justice, co-founder of the Arkansas Mycological Society and author of The Fungi of Arkansas, will share information about the Marvelous Mushrooms Of Missouri at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center. Registration began Aug. (ages 12–adult).

This program is provided by the Missouri Mycological Society, and is a great way for young people (of all ages) to gather with those who know about these magnificent fungi.

Justice will share his knowledge of common edible as well as poisonous species of mushrooms as well as information about unique species will be shared from his 30 years of experience.
