MUSHROOMS AND FUNGI OF THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS
Presenter: Florence Nishida
What IS a mushroom anyway? Do we have any in Los Angeles? Where can I find some? These are some of the questions that Florence Nishida, mycologist, will answer as she takes you through a tour of some of our interesting mushrooms in and around Los Angeles.
Florence Nishida is a master gardener and research associate at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. She is a mycologist who is working on a guide to southern California mushrooms and fungi. She leads our CNPS Chapter’s Mushroom Forays in the Santa Monica Mountains when we have wet weather.
