Forest Mushrooms of Southwestern Oregon / Northwestern California
Instructor: David Lebo, M.S.
Dates: Friday-Sunday, November 3-5, 2017
Learn about the biology, ecology, taxonomy, and field identification of forest mushrooms. The class will focus on all mushrooms — edible, poisonous, mycorrhizal, saprobic/saprotrophic and parasitic/pathogenic. We’ll spend Friday afternoon in class learning about fungi and then drive the scenic Smith River Gorge Saturday, looking for mushrooms on the Six Rivers National Forest. Sunday we’ll continue forays along the southern Oregon Coast or the northern California Coast (south of Crescent City).
Note: If you’re exclusively interested in edible mushrooms, consider signing up for Spring Mushroom Foray or the fall Edible Mushrooms field courses.
