Wild Mushrooms
City of Champignons August 17, 2014

Greetings to Alberta Mycological Society Members - Please note that this special event is coming up very soon, so forward this message, or print & post, to people you know who love mushrooms as much as you do - they won't want to miss it!

Mushrooms, mushrooms everywhere – and some are good to eat!

 

“City of Champignons” Mushroom Exposition is coming again this year to the Devonian Botanic Garden’s Pine Pavilion on Sunday, August 17 (11am – 4pm).


Come one, come all, to The Greatest Show from Earth!

This is Alberta Mycological Society’s showcase for the public. As mycological ambassadors, we will show off, and amaze you with hundreds of edible and incredible displays of fresh, wild mushrooms picked only the day before. This is a great learning experience for members and visitors alike, as most of the fungi displayed will have names put to them.
 

Bring your own mushrooms that you’ve found – talk to an expert and get a name on your treasure.

See our specialized displays with Edible, Poisonous, and Medicinal mushrooms. Browse through our sample field guides and coffee table books. Purchase cool mushroom stuff like posters, books, t-shirts and more. Sign up for memberships or upcoming activities. There will be gorgeous slide presentations, a lecture, and a scheduled “Walk in the Garden” among other events.

Our Wild Mushroom Café will tantalize your taste buds with tasty tidbits.

 

Directions:

The scenic Devonian Botanic Garden is located in Parkland County, 5 kms north of Devon on Highway 60, within 30 minutes of downtown Edmonton. Regular admission fees apply to enter the Garden.
