This event is part of the #MacMoves campaign, which is a week-long promotion of healthy movement across the McMaster community, amongst students, faculty, staff, and alumni. To learn more about the campaign, visit the #MacMoves website.
Come join Dr. Jianping (J-P) Xu, Professor in the Department of Biology on a fungi walk! Dr. Xu is an expert in fungi and fungi evolution.
In this mushroom foray, we will start by describing features of mushrooms, followed by an interactive Q and A on all things mushrooms and fungi. We will then walk along the trails at McMaster Forest to find and discuss the mushrooms we encounter. Depending on the weather before our foray, we may find plenty of mushrooms (if it has been rainy and not too hot a few days prior to October 1st) or few (if it has been dry and hot). Please dress appropriately for hiking and for the weather, with hiking shoes, long pants, and long-sleeved shirt/jacket. All are welcome and I looking forward to seeing everyone!
