Taught by Mycologist Greg Marley, this day-long class is devoted to building the skills needed to identify common mushrooms and begin a lifetime of wild mushrooming. The course will combine lecture and outdoor experience to look at identification features, ecology, and the seasonal occurrence of mushrooms.

We will look at edible and common poisonous mushrooms and may end the day by cooking some of the mushrooms we find. The focus will be on learning a few common edible and medicinal mushrooms and building skills for ongoing identification. Come prepared for a hike and to have a fun learning day. Participants should bring fresh specimens of mushrooms from their property.
