Eastern hemlocks and citizen science

If you live on the east coast and are interested in a citizen science project or an outreach project through your classes check out this post from Cyme & Cystidium. Especially if you like to tromp around the woods and can help find fungi associated with Eastern Hemlock trees which are undergoing a serious die-off due to an insect called the Woolly Adelgid. Cyme is interested in finding what happens to the mycorrhizal fungi associated with trees undergoing this massive die-off so collecting what fungal species fruit under these trees will help answer questions as to what kinds of shifts in populations occur when the host species are lost.
