Often casually called “the Meadow Mushrooms,” about 90% of Agaricus species actually reside in forest and other non-grassland habitats. All species exploit the partly decomposed remains of green plants. Some species are edible, even cultivated, while others are toxic.
Typically, meetings are held on the second Monday night of each month, from March through October, at 7:30 PM. The doors open at 7:00PM. This year we are back at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street (Map). The meetings are in Mitchell Hall.
