MAWDC Monthly Meeting - July

  • 05 Jul 2022
  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • virtual via Zoom

MAW's July monthly meeting will feature a presentation by Nathan Wilson, the founder and president of Mushrooms Observer ("MO").  Nathan will be talking about how MO is structured, the upcoming release of a MO mobile app for making observations in the field, machine learning being used on the hundreds of thousands of MO identified images in its online data base discussion, and advanced ways to access MO data.

In addition to announcements, and mushrooms in the news by Elizabeth Hargrave, and the virtual ID table by Mitch Fournet, our meeting will also include a discussion by member and identifier Annie Weissman about data mining in iNaturalist  to find new places to take mushroom walks, information about what mushrooms are currently being found in our area, and seasonality of our favorite mushrooms.  Join MAW's iNaturalist project and post your recent observations (since we are now using posts in that project for the virtual ID table discussions),

Tom Moore, our membership chair, will announce MAW's transition from a MAWDC Facebook "page" to a new members-only MAWDC Facebook "group".  The purpose of the change is to provide a more interactive environment for MAW members.

John Harper, our program chair, will talk briefly about the opening of a new Park Research Forum on MAW's website to crowd source from our members information about local parks and other areas for mushroom forays, including research of rules that restrict mushroom gathering.

We're virtual again this month via Zoom.  Here are the login credentials, including passcode should you need it.
