MPFN October Meeting


David Hawke by Ken MacDonald, on Flickr
We're just ​1 week away from the October Meeting of the
Midland-Penetanguishene Field Naturalists
Thurs. ​Oct. 19​, 2017 7:30 PM Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre

MPFN Members FREE; Non-members and guests are asked to consider making a $5 donation
Our Guest Speaker
DAVID HAWKE
Stewardship Program Manager at Couchiching Conservancy
His topic: FABULOUS FUNGI
David is well known to our group. Last year his presentation on the history of fences was a big hit. His presentation "Fabulous Fungi" will peek into the intriguing world of these unique and oft misunderstood "plants". David will introduce us to the many groups of locally found fungi, their identifying characteristics, as well as a few of the legends that go hand-in-hand with mushrooms and toadstools. He will be including a few examples of slime molds, as he feels that these species are "way cooler" than your everyday mushroom."
N.B. David is once again being a hero for us by stepping into the breach when our previously scheduled speaker(s) was forced to cancel. Unfortunately Hillary Hatzipetrakos of Fungi Unveiled who had originally planned to present to us is having unexpected surgery next week. We wish Hillary a speedy recovery. We look forward to having Hillary and Drew present to us when she is feeling better.
With David being a man of such extensive varied knowledge, we were able to keep the topic the same and simply switch the speaker.
Unfortunately the outing that was planned with Fungi Unveiled on Sat. Oct. 21st will have to be cancelled for the time being. We'll let you know if anything else develops.

As usual we will be fundraising by selling our 50/50 tickets and our MPFN Magic Bean Soup.
