This year we will be offering an immersive internship in mycology to Binghamton University students

Dates: July 12 - August 13

Location: East Brook Community Farm, Walton, NY

Interns will gain hands on experience in fungus identification and mushroom cultivation, while living and working alongside the farmers and researchers of East Brook. Daily responsibilities will largely consist of surveying the fungal diversity of the East Brook Valley, but will also include, cooking, cleaning, farm meetings, and other daily necessities. This is an opportunity to experience life on a working farm while honing ecological research techniques. Interns will be listed as co-authors in a fungal biodiversity survey paper to be published in the journal Mycotaxon in the winter of 2022.
