Event description

Description

Fungi are often a hidden part of natural communities but they are very important and incredibly fascinating in the many ways they work ‘behind the scenes’ of nature. They are a very diverse group adapted to every niche and despite often being tough to find, there are probably mushrooms all around you when you venture into the woods.

Come on a hike with experienced forager and biologist Luke Eckstein to explore the amazing world of fungi and mushrooms this fall! We will see what kinds of mushrooms are fruiting right now, work on our identification skills, and learn about the habits and ecology of the fungi we encounter.

You will learn:

  • Mushroom Identification
  • Risks, hazards and safety
  • Sustainable harvesting
  • What mushrooms are in season

You will want to attend if:

  • You are curious about mushrooms
  • You want to better understand your environment
  • You are interested in respectfully harvesting wild edible mushrooms
