Medicinal Mushroom Research & Old Growth Forests


​Have you ever experienced a family member struggling with cancer or Alzheimer’s? Have you heard how mushrooms are being used to help with depression and PTSD? With mapping of the human genome and the continuing growing body of research on epigenetics, the 200,000+ molecules in mushrooms are proving to have incredible effects on the human immune systems ability to respond to pathogens and degeneration. Mushrooms also play a similar role in forests around the world, but are in decline due to removal of wood debris.

Come out to Moosewood Nature Center at 2:00 pm. on Saturday, November 11th to join the discussion about these emerging fields of research, ID some medicinal fungi and learn about the role that old growth forests play in developing medicine for us humans and curbing the effects of climate change.

Suggested donation $20 but no one gets turned away. Attendees please RSVP as there is only 30 spots available. Mushroom ID and handouts with be provided.
