Fungi entertainment

“Plants are fascinating. Fungi are fascinating. But for sheer entertainment value, it’s difficult to beat plants PLUS fungi.” So says forest ecologist Andy MacKinnon. Join him Sunday, June 5 at 7pm at the Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden to learn how most plants rely on fungi for their health.
MacKinnon is author of “Plants of the Pacific Northwest” and five other best-selling regional guides for native plants. Once called a rock star of biologists, he combines his passion for our native plants with a dynamic way of presenting their stories and science. “Fungi have been associated with plants since plants first colonized land, and are requisite partners of almost all of our familiar Pacific Northwest plants.”
Cost is $20 general admission/$15 for Botanical Garden members, from the Garden office, or by calling 604-740-3969, or email info@coastbotanicalgarden.org. Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden is at 5941 Mason Road, Sechelt, and is open for summer hours Friday to Wednesday 11 am – 4 pm, by donation.  Members enjoy unlimited visits plus many extra perks.
