Join us Thursday, July 16, at 7 pm PDT for a free NightLife livestream! No registration required.

One of our most popular NightLife events gets the NightSchool treatment with short virtual lessons on the many facets of fungi.

  • Mycologist and microbiologist Dr. Gordon Walker (aka Instagram’s @fascinatedbyfungi) presents a fascinating primer on fungal biology.
  • Maya Elson, executive director of CoRenewal, invites viewers to think like a fungus and learn about the ways CoRenewal is working with fungi to help post-fire ecological regeneration.
  • Learn about cordyceps cultivation with William Padilla-Brown, permaculture designer, teacher, rapper, and founder of MycoSymbiotics.
  • Get a deep dive into the making of the Radical Mycology Mixtape and the intersection of mycology and art, presented by Peter McCoy.
