NMMS Upcoming Events

October 31 ▪ 2:00-4:00pm ▪ Albuquerque Garden Center
"Oyster October"  Oyster mushroom cultivation workshop with NMMS members Chris and David A.  Pack your own bag of mushroom spawn to take home and watch them fruit!

November 14 ▪ 2:00-4:00pm ▪ Albuquerque Garden Center

"Limited Diversity and Frequency of Ectomycorrhizal Inoculum in 16-11,000 year-old Extirpated Piňon Stands"

Understand how mycorrhizal communities associated with piñon changed after local piñon extirpation. Piñon and its associated mycorrhizal partners are dependent on each other, or in other words, they cannot survive without each other. My thesis work demonstrates how drastically these fungal communities change after the removal of piñon. The results of my study will help with replanting and conservation efforts in piñon-juniper woodlands.

December 5 ▪ 2:00-5:00pm ▪ Holiday pot luck for members

NMMS members will receive further details via email. Stay tuned!
