An Evening with Peter McCoy

author of Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing and Working with Fungi


Peter McCoy speaks on behalf of the fungi, the most overlooked and misrepresented organisms in the web of life. As an interdisciplinary, systems-oriented mycology educator with 17 years of experience, Peter is considered one of the most prominent voices in the modern mycology movement. In 2006, Peter co-founded Radical Mycology, a grassroots mycological advocacy organization and social movement to share his life-long passion for helping others understand mycology. In 2016, Peter published the 650-page book Radical Mycology: A Treatise on Seeing & Working With Fungi to share his accumulated skills, experiences, and knowledge.
