Mushroom ID for Beginners-- In Person Class and Walk, June 18, Northeastern Connecticut



Collection of assorted Boletes

What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry?
Join The 3 Foragers as they share some of the secrets of the fungal world and teach you how to safely identify wild mushrooms using various available tools and techniques. You'll learn how to use your senses to examine mushrooms for their sights, smells, and tastes, and consider the relationships between fungi and the natural world around us. We will dispel common myths, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms. This is a sit down presentation followed by a short walk. Bring a pen to take notes, a handout will be provided.
