Learn how to safely identify, collect and then eat local mushrooms! Discover key characteristics of typical species and acquire skill in differentiating the poisonous and inedible from the edible types. We’ll take to the field and identify fungi commonly found in forests of the Southern Cascades, searching out sites and species fruiting in the early summer.

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.
