The Mysterious Nature of Fungi
Date(s) - 09/17/2015
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hosted by the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation
This exhibit gives an overview of these mysterious organisms that are found almost everywhere on this planet and are the cause of both bliss and blight. Selections from the Hunt Institute Art and Library collections illustrate subjects such as misconceptions; characteristics that create delirium, disease or death; wild and cultivated edibles; intriguing structures that quickly morph, disintegrate or use propulsion to release spores; and beneficial and parasitic relationships with other living organisms. Whatever your interest, we hope that you will come away with a new fascination and respect for fungi.
The opening reception on 17 September (5–7 p.m.) is open to the public. At 5:30 p.m. the curators will give a short introduction to the exhibition in the gallery. The exhibition will run through to the 17 December 2015.

Sometimes the address and location information for a meeting point is not 100% accurate. Some parks and meeting point do not have a street address so it is difficult to program the map to point to the exact location.

We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine. Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if you are late we will already be in the woods. You can find last minute additions or changes by going to our Facebook Group.
