Looking at spores under a microscope can instantly point a beginner to the right genus. More advanced mushroomers may look at spore ornamentation or spore size to determine the species. Aspiring experts may be looking for specific microscopic features like cheilosystidia to help them in their quest. So whatever your level of expertise, come to this workshop to learn how to use a microscope or get more out of one that you own. Led by Mike Rubin.

$15.00 fee. Limit 16 participants.
