Quadra's new Mushroom Club will meet next month in Quadra Community Centre's Green Room (not the HBI Bayview Room as previously announced). On Tuesday, November 6th at 7 pm Club members and any fungi-fans are invited to plan forays, events and share interests and skills. Enjoy mushroom snacks too!
The Club thanks our generous sponsors - the Heriot Bay Inn, Quadra Rec Society and S. Vancouver Is. Mycological Society - for a wonderful Mushroom Festival 2012. Over 100 species of fungi were identified, including likely the first recorded B.C. find of the Fall Oregon White Truffle (Tuber oregonense). This prized edible is considered comparable to the famous European White Truffle.
Club Info & membership: Maureen McDowell at (250) 285-2221.
