Christian Schwarz, Author Talk
CHRISTIAN SCHWARZ, CO-AUTHOR OF MUSHROOMS OF THE REDWOOD COAST, TO VISIT FORT BRAGG LIBRARY AND COAST COMMUNITY LIBRARY
Fort Bragg Library on Saturday, Nov. 17th 2:00 PM - Free
Coast Community Library on Sunday, Nov. 18th - Free
In celebration of Mushroom Festival month this November, Fort Bragg Library and Coast Community Library are hosting author talks from mushroom expert Christian Schwarz. These events are free and open to the public.
CHRISTIAN SCHWARZ is a naturalist interested in the diversity of living organisms in general, but the seemingly endless forms (whether grotesque, bizarre, or sublime) of fungi, in particular, stoke his curiosity. He spends most of his time teaching about natural history, collecting and photographing mushrooms, assembling an exhaustive mycoflora for Santa Cruz County (www.scmycoflora.org), and exploring wilderness around the world. He is particularly interested in the role of citizen scientists in the future of ecological and taxonomic research.
