Exploring the Hidden World of Truffles

Instructor: Scott Loring, PhD.
Date: Friday-Sunday, November 17-19, 2017
Location: Meet at SFI
Tuition: $165


As mushrooms that have evolved into subterranean organisms, truffles often go unnoticed. Scot, the co-author of Rare Truffles of Oregon (soon to be published), will show you where to look, how to identify them by sight and smell and under the microscope. We’ll investigate their ecological roles in the mycorrhizal networks that lie underground. In a combination of labs, lectures and field trips, you’ll discover how to find hidden truffles and learn how to identify both common and rare types. Nearly 400 different types of truffles are known to exist in Oregon: many species are found in the diverse Siskiyou bioregion. These include several gourmet edibles that fetch exorbitant prices, along with some rare types that are of conservation concern.
