Life Underground: The Story of Truffles and Truffle-Like Fungi

Dr. Len Hutchison, Lakehead University Natural Resources Management, will talk about the biology of these unusual fungi that form their fruiting bodies underground. In particularly, their relationship with mammals and forest trees. Along the way, he will discuss the interest high end
restaurant chefs and gourmands have with some of the more famous members of this group.

This meeting will also be a "Bring & Buy" event. Please, bring along items with a nature orientation, e.g., used books, or something edible that you have made, e.g., baking or preserves, to sell. And don't forget to bring along some cash to buy thngs with. All proceeds will go towards the production of our revised Nature Guide.
