Michelle Mabry, left, chair of the Davis & Elkins College Biology and Environmental Science Department, identifies a mushroom with master naturalist student Pamela Byrne while conducting a fungi workshop recently for the Tygart Valley chapter of the West Virginia Master Naturalist program. Master naturalist training is offered in a broad range of specialties in the fields of natural history and environmental education. Topics include mushrooms, wildflowers, insects, snakes, birds, mammals, weather, geology, fossils, nature interaction and teaching, all from a West Virginia perspective. The class took place in Fox Forest adjacent to the W.Va. Division of Natural Resources’ headquarters on Ward Road. For information on the master naturalist program, call Tommy Zeitz, chapter coordinator, at 304-866-7418.
