About the Event
This is a fun experience for families to learn more about fungi together! After a brief discussion on safety and stewardship, we'll explore the trails at The Foxfire Museum and learn to identify as many species of fungi as we can find. We'll also teach you how to use various mushroom guidebooks and share ways to make delicious dishes and medicine with...you guessed it...mushrooms!
Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Every parent and child must purchase a ticket. Children under 3 years old may attend for free.
