About the Event

It’s  chanterelle mushroom season in Northeast Georgia. Let’s see what we can  find on the trails! Foraging in summer is a prime time to hone your  botanical identification skills as many of the plants and fungi are  blooming and fruiting. You can tell a lot about a plant by its  inflorescence (flower) and fruit. This might even help you distinguish a  toxic plant from a non-toxic plant – a most important skill for any  forager to learn!

On  this walk, we are likely to come across Solomon’s seal with its  berries, Queen Anne’s lace in bloom, and possibly the elusive ghost  pipe, a powerful natural analgesic. Join us at the peak of the growing  season as we continue to learn about the wild plants in our natural  environment that can be used as food and medicine.
