"A day long workshop dedicated to discovering and understanding the mysterious world of mushrooms. Debbie Viess of the Bay Area Mycological Society will lead us into this world. Debbie, aka "Amanitarita," is a biologist and naturalist, writer and artist. A former zoologist and animal behaviorist, she was seduced away from her work with the furred and feathered by the fascinating world of fungi, and has been seriously obsessed with various fungal studies, and especially the genus Amanita, for over twenty years. A long time Bay Area resident, she is the Co-Founder of the Bay Area Mycological Society (BAMS!). Debbie has written about mushrooms extensively both online and in print."
