Sister Marie & MNA donated their services as part of the Silent Auction at the yearly banquet of the Michigan Nature Association, the very first organization in Michigan to preserve natural areas.
The winner of Sister Marie’s silent auction offering enjoyed a privately tutored field experience learning about fungi of the forests.
Sister Marie Kopin has donated her services for a privately tutored field experience learning about fungi of the forests. Donations received from the silent auction will be used to fund the purchase of a rare original stand of native pines in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, enlarging an existing MNA preserve.
Sister Marie, the winner of the 2018 Knighton Service Award and much in demand for her mycology expertise, may lead you to visit a MNA sanctuary depending on conditions. The best time to search is between September and the first week of October.
