An evening with mycologist Paul Stamets at the Wagner Free Institute of Science

Can mushrooms save the world?

Famed mycologist Paul Stamets thinks so! Join us for a rare chance to see Paul on the east coast give a talk about the amazing potential of mushrooms to help save our plant and improve human health.

Following the talk Paul will sell and sign his books and there will be a reception featuring appetizers made with mushrooms from local farms and beer brewed with shiitake mushrooms. Meet local mushroom farmers, buy mushroom kits and create spore prints. A temporary exhibit will be unveiled showcasing 19th century papier-mâché mushroom models, never before on public display, from the Wagner collection.
