May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Grand Hotel River View Room Warrandyte, Vic Australia

Seminar: Exploring the clandestine relationships between trees and fungi Although little known, the roots of almost every tree in the Australian landscape are intimately entwined with fungi.

Alison Pouliot – Forests of fungi workshop, Apollo Bay Vic

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
