Albion 1 - December Field Report

Another successful foray for FFSC.   Many mushroom were found although we missed the b. edulius and butter bolete flush earlier in the season by 3 - 4 weeks.   We still had many to choose from.

The weather was beautiful and club members who attended met and greeted each other as extended family members which FFSC is.   It is so good to see all our friends and as each foray passes, the list continues to grow...

UCSC Fungal Herbarium Sequencing Project (by Henry Young)

"To expand through education, the understanding and appreciation of mycology and to assist the general public, related institutions or societies to further this goal as stated articles of incorporation."  

2013 FFSC voted to allocate $15,000 to fund this project for DNA sequencing.   And with the help of other contributors have reduced the FFSC amount.  All FFSC funds and others for this project have been paid directly to the analytic lab that did the sequencing.
