Zoom into Nature: Ohio’s Mushrooms

April 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an evening with Ian Adams as he presents his virtual program Fungus Among Us. Ohio is home to more than 2,000 different kinds of wild mushrooms.

Many are inedible, but a few are delicious. Some mushrooms are toxic, and a small number are deadly poisonous. Mushrooms are fungi, which play an important role in many of the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the drugs used to treat many illnesses and injuries. Fungi are also an indispensable part of the soil, and many of them make beautiful subjects for close up photography. In this program, illustrated with dozens of color photos, Ian introduces us to the fascinating world of Ohio’s mushrooms.

Advanced registration is required.
