The Fungus Among Us: A Mount Baker Mushroom Excursion Field Excursions, Nov 01, 2014 from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM, Baker Lake Area with Lee Whitford Price: General Tuition (age 18+) $95 Autumn rains nourish a proliferation of mushrooms in our region. There are red ones, purples ones, large and small, some are shaped like coral, others smell like almonds or licorice. Together, we’ll venture into the forest to learn more about the variety of fungus among us. Lee Whitford, an experienced natural history educator and an expert in mushroom field identification, will provide an overview of fungi, their habitats and helpful I.D. techniques. After a brief introduction, we'll head to the woods to gather samples while practicing observation skills, describing their characteristics and learning about their roles in the forest. The day will end indoors identifying our finds and going into greater depth on areas of your interest.

2 PacNW Authors, @ Different Novels, One Reading Two Bainbridge Island authors, Kenneth G. Bennett and Larry Weiner, will be at a reading event at Village Books in Bellingham, WA on Sat., Nov. 1 at 4pm in the Readings Gallery. Kirkus Reviews said of this eco, scifi speculative fiction set in the Pacific NW, EXODUS 2022, “Bennett, after a neat Dean Koontz-style curtain raiser, keeps raising the stakes… Deft storytelling and a riptide of action propel this cataclysmic narrative.” Early readers, including NY Times Bestselling authors, Rebecca Wells and Bob Mayer, have thus far been extremely favorable and enthusiastic as EXODUS 2022 is a provocative, germane, edge-of-your-seat novel that seems to elicit much thought and conversation long after the last page. Bennett’s first novel series, a self-published eco, sci-fi YA adventure, THE GAIA WARS, also was optioned for film by Identity Films, LA: http://variety.com/2012/film/news/bennett-s-gaia-wars-finds-identity-films-1118058388/ Larry Weiner, self-published author of Paradise Rot and Once Again with Blood (satirical zombie speculative fiction that opens in Seattle) describes his first book as, “PARADISE ROT is about zombies. Also advertising people (same dif), gun runners, gay baristas, talking Chihuahuas and necrophiliacs. Also about weird people. But at heart, it's about people. Dealing with apocalyptic weirdness at a posh Caribbean resort and trying to stake out a moral compass point in the midst of mass homicide. To a Seventies pop soundtrack. It's Jimmy Buffett and Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard and Don Draper taking turns whacking Anne Rice with a cricket bat.” http://www.kennethgbennettbooks.com/ http://www.larrynweiner.com/#!
