Atlanta Botanic Garden -- Fungi and So Much More
Join mushroom-lovers from around the area for Taylor Lockwood's Fantastic Fungi of the World presentation. A champion of these often maligned and much misunderstood life forms, Lockwood has "dedicated his career to esthetic mycology." The presentation takes place on Wednesday, June 14, 2006, at 7:30 pm.

Or, if your taste runs more to sipping wine while listening to good music, check out the garden's SunTrust Concerts in the Garden series, which starts June 9. For more information, visit the Atlanta Botanic Garden Web site or call (404) 876-5859. Even if you don't plan to attend any events, visit their Web site; it's very cool.
