Despite rumours that this year was not a good mushroom year, the 10th annual Fungus Among Us Mushroom Festival's gurus still found over 100 different types of mushrooms and attracted a great crowd of keen mushroomers over the weekend.

The Whistler Naturalists would like to thank all those who made the annual event possible: the Community Foundation of Whistler as a main sponsor, the 19 fabulous mushroom gurus for their talks on Friday night (Oct. 12) and for leading the walks on Saturday (Oct. 13); Silvia Bergensen for a new dyeing with mushrooms workshop; Ophra 'Queen of the fungal skillet' Buckman for presenting the cooking with mushrooms show and tasting; Nesters Market for donating wild mushrooms for the tasting; all the volunteers who helped out; the Resort Municipality of Whistler for providing financial support; and all the folks that came out to share their enthusiasm and wonder for all things fungal.

Thanks to Bob Brett for these photos:
