Mycological Meeting--Mushrooms!

For some of us "mycological" is almost "mythological", but to Stephen Russell is is a way of life.  Mycology is the study of mushrooms and Stephen has been following fungi for years.

His presentation will focus on edible mushrooms--both finding them and making sure they are safe for consumption!

Join us at 6:30pm on Tuesday, Jan 10th to meet Stephen and learn more about mushrooms.

More about Stephen:

His ongoing love of fungi has led him to found The Hoosier Mushroom Society, Indiana’s first and only amateur mycological association ( He holds a Master’s of Environmental Science with a focus on Microbiology, and a Master’s of Public Affairs with a focus on Public Policy – both from Indiana University, and is currently writing a book on at-home mushroom cultivation.
