Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast
a discussion with Christian Schwarz
Saturday, November 17, 2018, 2 pm
Mushroom enthusiasts are invited to a free mushroom discussion with Christian Schwarz, co-author of Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast.
CHRISTIAN SCHWARZ is a naturalist interested in the diversity of living organisms in general, but the seemingly endless forms (whether grotesque, bizarre, or sublime) of fungi, in particular, stoke his curiosity. He spends most of his time teaching about natural history, collecting and photographing mushrooms, assembling an exhaustive mycoflora for Santa Cruz County (www.scmycoflora.org), and exploring wilderness around the world. He is particularly interested in the role of citizen scientists in the future of ecological and taxonomic research.
