“The Silent Kingdom,” a program about the fungi, mushrooms, toad stools, slime and mold that live among us, will be presented at the Wyomissing Public Library on Saturday, September 25th at 11 AM. The in-person program will focus on how these living creatures, which are neither plant nor animal but a primeval combination of enzymes and neurons, can break down almost any earthly substance and change and shape our world ecologically. What causes them to appear, grow and then disappear? What good do they do, and when are they harmful?
Wyomissing resident Gail Dawson-White, who has surveyed and studied local fungi, will present the program, which is free and open to the public. The Wyomissing Public Library is located at 9 Reading Boulevard in Wyomissing. Registration for the program is requested, and may be done in person at the library, by email to [email protected], or by phone , 610-374-2385.
