Join mycologist and FUNGI Magazine editor Britt Bunyard for an exciting talk on the most up-to-date discoveries and uses of Chaga. Inonotus obliquus--chaga--is currently the "it" fungus. It has been used in Russian folk medicine since at least the 16th century. Topics include: Harvesting chaga responsibly, the sex life of the fungus, and proper identification and avoiding poisonous look-alikes. Britt's visit will be a very special treat for mycophiles who don't already know Bunyard's unique perspective and big personality.
Recorded live Monday, June 3, 2013 at North Park Village Nature Center.
