Learn how to safely identify, collect and then eat local mushrooms! This course will dive into spring-fruiting fungi – discover key characteristics of typical species and acquire skill in differentiating the poisonous and inedible from the edible types, and enjoy expert field guidance and identification from our instructor on a trip to common fungi fruiting spots in forests of the Southern Cascades.

Field hike is moderately difficult (hiking over uneven terrain/through forest debris for up to 4 hours, but no significant elevation gain).

Ages 12+ welcome.
