JoAnn Olson, Humboldt Bay Mycological Society

JoAnn Olson is one of the founding members of the Humboldt Bay Mycological Society — a group of locals who are interested in fungi.  OK — interested might be an understatement, these folks are downright passionate.  And — not just the edible kind, which represent only a teeny tiny number of the thousands and thousands of fungi that are out there.  The Humboldt Bay Mycological Society are the folks that bring us the annual Mushroom Fair at Redwood Acres, where you can bring the fungi you’d like to ID, or buy a kit and grow mushrooms at home — I’ve done that several times and it’s great fun to watch the beautiful little shroomies appear from the planting mix.
