Mushroom Maynia: May 11, 2013

The Burke Museum, Daniel E. Stuntz Memorial Foundation and the Puget Sound Mycological Society will be hosting the 6th annual Mushroom Maynia Day at the Burke Museum of the University of Washington on Saturday, May 11, 2013. This is a family oriented event to raise awarness of the fungi in our lives and world.

Mycology is intimately connected to the studies of forestry, botany, ecology, medicine, and the culinary arts. It is the goal of The Daniel E. Stuntz Memorial Foundation and PSMS to keep these connections alive by supporting the study of fungal systematics and the natural science of mushrooms.

Mushroom Maynia! is made possible by the Daniel E. Stuntz Memorial Foundation and the volunteers of the Puget Sound Mycological Society. Many thanks to the Peg and Rick Young Foundation for their support of this unique event.
