"Mushroom Mythbusters"

Danny Miller

We’re very excited to have the debonair and dynamic Danny Miller as our SVIMS March speaker. Danny first got interested in Mushrooms in 2007 after seeing strange colourful creatures in the forest all the time while hiking and skiing off trail, and finally deciding he had to find out what they were. The more he learned, the more interesting they seemed, and it just hasn't stopped. Danny is the Education Chair for the Puget Sound Mycological Society, helping to design and teach the curriculum for the club's mycology classes. He is also the club Librarian, and ID Committee co-ordinator and emergency poisoning point person for King County Washington Poison Control. Danny also belongs to the PNW Key Council, a group of amateur and professional mycologists and is a co-author of MatchMaker with Ian Gibson, the free PNW mushroom ID program for the PC and MAC. He has a big interest in taxonomy and figuring out where all of the mushrooms fit into the fungal tree of life. Learn about some of the most entertaining mushroom myths and the truths behind them.
