NMMS Upcoming Meetings & Events
Sunday, May 14 • 2:00-4:00 pm • ABQ Garden Center
Harpo Faust is Collections Manager at the Herbarium in the UNM Museum of Southwestern Biology. Dylan Martin has been an active member and contributor to the New Mexico Mycological Society, serving as an officer as well as Chair of the Foray Committee. Together, Harpo and Dylan will discuss their work with the fungal specimens which reside at the UNM Herbarium.
NMMS has been contributing specimens to the UNM Herbarium since the earliest days of NMMS. However, these contributions have been intermittent, and the collections have remained somewhat neglected through the years. Since coming on board at UNM, Harpo has brought energy and a strong focus to organizing and documenting the Herbarium’s collections. Dylan Martin has dedicated many hours to working on the fungal representatives of those collections.
Join us 2:00-4:00 pm on Sunday, May 14th, at the Albuquerque Garden Center, to hear Dylan and Harpo discuss their progress and goals for this project. Please plan to get there early, so you can claim your seat, and we can get the presentation rolling on time.
