    hello Bryan
    I recall meeting you at a weekend “intro to mushroom” workshop at NU last fall 2019. You had several of your personal collection field guides and mushroom genus books for participants to peruse.
    I am beginning to learn more about mushrooms and fungus as I hike in the local area and Outouais. Could you please remind me of the books you might recommend for a local amateur?
    As well, have you any field trips planned ..? or would you consider offering your time (paid) for a guided hike ?
    Best wishes,
