This eye-opening introduction to the fungal kingdom will start with a discussion about a wide assortment of mushrooms and other fungi. We will then take a walk through the woods, seeking and discovering the magic of the Ganaraska Forest at Haute Goat.
As a resident of the Northumberland Hills, Irka Dyczok, a professional Interior Designer, is inspired by Mother Nature’s bounty and ever-changing world. The inconceivable beauty and diversity of funghi are a source of endless fascination. She has photographed over 400 species and has pursued an education into the world of mycology. This has led to a reverence and respect for the important role that fungi play in the relationship to the forest.
