June 10, 2015 @ AMC Monthly Meeting

Ken will be speaking on “Mushrooms of the Southern Appalachians: A Sampler of What's Out There.”

Ken Crouse is a co-owner of Peaceful Valley Gardens in Wilkes County, NC. He has been collecting and studying fungi for over 30 years. He is a longtime member of NAMA and former regional trustee for the SE Region.

Ken met two of the founders of AMC at his first NAMA foray (in WV) when the formation of a club in Asheville was still only a vision. Ken was very involved with several of the early forays; particularly, the famous Labor Day Forays. He also was co-founder of the Blue Ridge Mushroom Club, which was active for many years and had several joint forays with AMC.
