IMA President 2013 and IMA Meet-up Co-organizer


Chicago, IL

Member since:

December 19, 2012

What interests you about learning how to identify mushrooms and joining forays with others who are engaged in learning about mycology and the environment?

I'm interested in the ecology and evolution of every kind of mushrooms, including edible, medicinal, poisonous, wood-rotters, disease agents and compounds that are important from an ethnobotanical perspective.

How did you learn about this organization and its events?

I began attending IMA forays and meetings in the 90s, when they were still hosted at the Field Museum, but now the meetings usually meet at the Northpark Nature Center on Pulaski, just South of Peterson Avenue (14).

Just a reminder: this group focuses on having fun, while pursuing serious education about mushrooms.



When I was a little girl, my great-grandfather would say, "when the oak leaf is the size of a mouse's ear, it's time to look for morels." I'm a journalist and urban wildlife manager with a strong interest in social justice and the environment.
