Winchester Academy presents “Fantastic Fungi: Movers and Shapers of Forest Ecosystems”
March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Glen Stanosz is a Wisconsin native and Professor of Tree and Forest Health at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research group studies the biology and management of tree diseases caused by fungi. Professor Stanosz is an award winning teacher whose students include future foresters, horticulturists, and arborists, and professionals in the green industry.
Fungi are often overlooked, misunderstood, and definitely underappreciated. Yet these diverse and highly evolved organisms are critical to function of forest ecosystems. Their varied lifestyles are suited to roles as symbiotic mutualists, nature’s recyclers, or disease-causing tree pathogens. Fungi profoundly influence the initiation, development, composition, stability, and change of forests.
Our free programs are open to everyone on Mondays beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Waupaca Area Public Library. Coffee, conversation, and cookies at 6:00 P.M
If cancellation is required, an announcement will be made on WDUX and Facebook.
