The best way to learn mushroom identification is firsthand. Touch and smell are some of the best senses one can utilize for identifying mushrooms. If lack of experience or access to property is an issue, then connect with us for an opportunity to learn in the field with experienced foragers.

In this class you will learn the basics of mushroom identification. You will also learn to identify edible mushrooms, toxic mushrooms, and their common look-a-likes. Furthermore, best practices for harvesting, transporting, and preserving mushrooms are covered. Finally, you will be given ample resources to continue your mushroom education independently. 

Please wear appropriate hiking clothes and bring snacks, water, and bug spray if needed.

We prefer that attendees purchase tickets for these guided forays ahead of time, but this is not required unless otherwise stated in the event details below. You will have an opportunity to pay for a ticket when you arrive at the meeting location if you did not purchase a ticket online.

Details for each event can be found below.
