Pam O'Sullivan


Fascinating Fungi


Phillip House, 21 Old Mount Penang Road, Kariong.



Pam O'Sullivan has an interest in fungi that spans over forty years.  She has a Bachelor of Science with majors in Botany and Physical Geography.  During her degree she took all possible topics on mycology (the scientific study of fungi).  Through her attendance at numerous conferences and workshops on mycology, she has established a network of national and international mycologists.

Her talk will cover the following

  • What are fungi?
  • Why they are so important for soils, plants, our economy, and our health.
  • Stories about fungi.
  • Their beauty.

Pam is interested to hear stories and experiences of fungi from anyone attending the talk.  She would love you to bring images of fungi to share either as photos or on a USB drive.
