Join two visiting fungi and lichens experts, Vera Evenson and Dr. Scott Bates (Curator and Researcher respectively at the Sam Mitchel Herbarium of Fungi, Denver Botanic Gardens), for an ACES Annual Mushroom Fair! Learn all you ever wanted to know about mushrooms – a wide variety of specimens will be exhibited, identified and examined up close. Join us for an in-depth 2-day field course with both experts preceding the fair – Thursday and Friday, register through ACES! Come prepared to look at various mushrooms under a microscope, make spore prints, learn about their intricate ways and how important they are to the whole ecosystem – you’re welcome to bring your own mushrooms to share and learn about. Come to ACES for a fun filled afternoon learning about mushrooms – not to mention you’ll get to discuss which ones are the choice edible ones!
