The Silver Spring Garden Club invites you to a talk on:
“Life Underground – Get the Dirt on Soil Fungi” by Serenella Linares
Have you ever seen mushrooms popping up in your garden and wondered: “What is that? What is it doing to my plants?” During this talk we will explore the magical world of fungi, their functions, and how they are changing things in your garden. Come and learn about plant-fungi relationships and see the underground world like you have never seen it before. Learn some of the common species in the state of Maryland, and get a chance to see local species of mushrooms close-up!
Serenella Linares currently works as a Naturalist/School Programs Manager for Audubon Naturalist Society. She studied general biology (Bachelor’s degree) at Universidad Metropolitana de Puerto Rico, Atmospheric Science at Howard University, Washington DC (Master’s Degree); and has done graduate work in Mycology at University of Maryland, College Park. She “loves the outdoors, sharing my knowledge and learning more from people around me through meaningful conversations.”
