Mushroom Identification

Mushroom Identification

with the Western Montana Mycological Association

 

You are walking in the woods and you see a really cool mushroom but you don’t want to pick it because..what if it KILLS you!?!? Maybe you got brave and took one home only to realize you had no idea what it was or what to do with it. Come up your mycoliteracy game and learn how to identify mushrooms with some of Missoula’s biggest mushroom nerds. We’ll present a bit about mushroom anatomy before breaking out into groups to identify different species we’ve brought along using portable keys and field guides.

 

Egan Jankowski-Bradley manages Montana BioAgriculture laboratory operations. With 10+ years working in fungal laboratories including strain isolations, fungal production, and field trials is one of our best local resources about fungi and what they are capable of. He recently conducted a pilot demonstration of mycoremediation of acid mine drainage in the Pioneer Mountains of Montana. Egan has also been an active member of the WMMA for decades and is passionate about mushrooms!
