Every three weeks, Gaston and Kora Mae travel to the University of California, San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland for eye exams and treatments.

Wood will lead an all-day field seminar the following day to locate and identify (not collect) the fungi of the coastal forests and fields.
