While we’re all gazing at the snow and dreaming of summer, enjoy these photos from OMS Board member Pete Richards of the mushrooms he found in Lorain County one one of those balmy days we had in December!
This month’s issue of Salt Magazine features a nice write-up about mushrooms and OMS Board Member Walt Sturgeon:
Britt A. Bunyard and Jay Justice have published a new book on all the Amanitas of North America – worth checking out if you’re interested in this fascinating genus. Orders can be placed at fungimag.com and questions can be posted there or sent directly to Britt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re in the Columbus area and haven’t yet seen “Fantastic Fungi” (or if you have seen it and just can’t get enough), here’s one more opportunity. ** This is not an OMS event **
Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse in Columbus OH will be screening Fantastic Fungi on Saturday March 14th at 1:30 pm. Guests are encouraged to arrive early for a film Introduction by Te’Lario Watkins II from Tiger Mushroom Farms and mingle with reps from Friends of Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks to learn about mushroom hikes & other events!

I thought I would share this very handy beginners key for the Boletes. It was given to me by Ernst Both some years ago and is organized in a clear logical way which I find to be very useful. – Jerry
