WELCOME TO THE MUSHROOM CLUB OF GEORGIA
UPCOMING MEETINGS

September 6th, 2017

Julia Kerrigan
"The Gigantic World of Microfungi"


Even though you can't see them, microscopic fungi play a big part in our daily lives. Learn about the wonderful hidden world of microfungi. Discover the beauty of these tiny organisms that surround us (they're in the air, soil, plants, our homes - no matter how clean). An overview of various microfungi, their uses, and their ecology will be presented.

Julia Kerrigan is an Associate Professor of Mycology at Clemson University and cofounder and president of the South Carolina Upstate Mycological Society. Her research interests focus on fungal ecology, especially the basic biology of fungi and their interactions with other organisms.

As always, try to come around 6:15 to meet, greet, and share in some snacks!

Meeting are at the Intown Community Church, 2059 Lavista Road, Atlanta, 30329. We meet from 7:00 to 9:00 with a social time for snacking, identifying mushrooms, browsing guides and making friends. The social time begins at 6:15. Members bring snacks each month. A sign up list for volunteering to bring snacks will be passed around. This is a chance to learn some, connect some and get filled in on some of the club's plans for the year.
