Dr. Kyde possesses a BS in Botany, an MS in Plant Physiology and a Ph.D. in Mycology all granted by Rutgers University. She and her husband, Neil are residents of Tinicum Township where they have a home located on The Tulgey Wood, a State Stewardship Forest and a protected site through an easement granted by the Heritage Conservancy.
An active conservationist, Dr. Kyde has been a member of a number of Open Space and Land Conservation committees.

With her Ph.D. in Mycology, it goes without saying that she has a deep interest in mushrooms and correspondingly in-depth knowledge of them. It is our privilege to have Martie with us to present “Lotta Things You Don’t Know About ‘Shrooms”
