Telluride Mushroom Festival
The 33rd Telluride Mushroom Festival--August 15 through 19, 2014, with Pre-Conference Workshops on August 15th--celebrates the many uses of fungi (all things mycology). Fungi serve many purposes--from breaking down plant cellulose in nature to creating nutrients for plants, to serving as food and medicine for people, to acting as bio-remediators to filter and break down toxic land like oil spills and agricultural run off. This year's theme is "Mushroom Science." Please help the Telluride Institute in supporting this unique event!
