In light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak we are canceling our April meeting and will not be hosting any additional events until everything settles.
Now, more than ever, we need each other in (virtual) community. To fend off feelings of loneliness and isolation we encourage you to stay connected with us and other mycophiles through a variety of online resources as well as through physically distanced Citizen Science (Hello rain!).
Here are some resources to keep you connected:
- Become a citizen scientist by cataloging your fungal finds with the San Diego Mycoflora Project on iNaturalist and learn more about our Mushroom Barcoding Project for cataloging local species
- Post your unidentified finds to www.mushroomobserver.org or a Facebook ID group to learn more about your local fungi
- Join us for virtual Fantastic Fungi Day, 3/26 and watch Fantastic Fungi streaming from the comfort of your home
- Listen to myco podcasts Fungi Town, Mycoverse the Mushroom and Mushroom Revival featuring our very own Membership Manager Matthew Meyer (mmmm…) talking about his thesis research on episode #42
- Dive into mycological learning with Mycologos Online Courses
- Stay calm and healthy by enjoying local mushroom medicine from our members Muellers Mushrooms and OM Mushrooms
- Join NAMA (North American Mycological Association) to follow national mushroom news
- Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and use the tag #sdmyco to share your finds with us
We look forward to seeing you all in person soon as we have many ideas, projects, and classes to share.
Until then stay healthy and Mush Love,
San Diego Mycological Society Board
