October 6-10, 2022 (no longer attending)

Radical Mycology Convergence, Mulino, Oregon

Unfortunately, I will no longer be attending this event. But, it will still be fabulous and I encourage you to attend if you are able.


Founded in 2011 by Peter McCoy, the RMC is a blending of cultural, political, and philosophical topics with mycology. Over the five days of the RMC, fungi-lovers, artists, activists, and permaculturalists of all stripes come together to take part in mushroom hunts, art shows, outdoor fungal installations, and workshops on topics ranging from fungal ecology and mushroom cultivation, to medicine making and mitigating pollution via mycoremediation – all while meeting hundreds of like-minded people from around around the world!

Michael will give 2 presentations at this event. One will be an updated version of Michael's "Should I Have Eaten That" presentation. The second is an interactive workshop on how to efficiently identify fungal finds using the keys in Mushrooms of Cascadia: An Illustrated Key.
