Fungi Ecology: Life Below & Aboveground

October 15, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Fungi are everywhere! Join us to explore the Gardens’ diverse landscape to learn how fungi get their nutrients, about their role in the environment, and how they help (or hinder) plant growth. Participants will discover the many fungi that are free-living in soil or water; others that are parasitic or symbiotic with plants or animals and those that develop incredible architectural forms. We’ll learn lifecyles of some fascinating fungi!

Dr. Seanna Annis has been studying fungi for the last 40 years and teaches mycology (the study of fungi) and plant biology at the University of Maine. She studies fungal pathogens of wild blueberries in Maine and other interesting fungi that she comes across.
