As usual this is not a typical business meeting but focuses more on education and enjoying a weekend in the off season dedicated to the celebration of mushrooms. In that regard, we are thrilled to have Mushroom Guru, David Arora, as our guest speaker. David is an American mycologist, naturalist, and writer. He is the author of two popular books on mushroom identification, Mushrooms Demystified and All That the Rain Promises and More....
David Arora first developed an interest in wild mushrooms while growing up in Pasadena, California and organized his first mushroom collecting group while in high school. Later, an idea to start a mushroom club came about, and in 1984, David Arora founded The Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz. He began teaching about wild mushrooms in the early 1970s while living in Santa Cruz, California. Arora has traveled extensively throughout North America and the world, photographing and hunting mushrooms and learning about the mushroom gathering traditions and economies of different cultures.
This promises to be an enlightening, educational and entertaining lecture – you won’t want to miss it! David will also be giving a talk at the President’s Dinner as keynote speaker.
There will be a lunch provided by Ernest's at NAIT during the AGM. Because of the popularity of our guest speaker, we require pre-registration for the lunch ($15.00) as the kitchen requires a head count to prepare enough food.
