Join Christin Swearingen on a journey of fungi around the Alaska Botanical Garden. Come with questions and mushrooms from your backyard as we dive into this underrepresented kingdom of Fungi! Christin is a mycologist, someone who studied the Fungal Kingdom! She studied the use of oyster mushrooms to clean up diesel for her master’s thesis at UAF. She has degrees in Biology and Environmental Science from Oberlin College, and has volunteered on various mycology lab projects from amphibian chytrid at Cornell to ectomycorrhizae in Albequerque. Now she teaches mushroom identification through Folkskills.com and partnering with some great Anchorage nature centers and gardens!
