Ok you've had several days of mushrooming with the Festival experts. You went to Graham Steinruck's Intro to Colorado Mushrooms on Day 1 of the Festival. You went on all the forays. You spent a lot of time at the ID tent learning from experts. You even ate some of the strange wild mushrooms...and survived! Is your head spinning? It may be the altitude. Or it may be that you're suffering from Mycophilia! This presentation will be part slide show of major mushroom groups, mostly pretty pictures with information on how to know what's what. Plus this will be part demo with live specimens for you to handle, smell, and review with experts. 

Note that this demo will be up close and personal with the mushrooms in the very cosy and casual setting of the brand new Sheridan Bar. Plan to bring a coffee or grab a cocktail or beer from the bar! Earn brownie points: buy a beer or cocktail for your lecturer!
