Rick Van de Poll Keynote: It's All Connected

IT'S ALL CONNECTED

Join mycologist and ecologist Dr. Rick Van de Poll for an entertaining and informative overview of the mushrooms of the Cordova area. This illustrated talk will highlight the essential connection between wildlife (especially salmon) and the surrounding ecosystem, all of which are dependent on the diversity and decomposing function of fungi. Various ecosystem types will be discussed along with their key mushroom associates as we explore the role these fungi play in regulating and recycling nutrients, maintaining forest health, stabilizing soil, and creating sensory markers for migrating salmon.
