About the Event

Join Cara-Lee Langston to learn about foraging and using local fungi as food and medicine. Our day begins with a short classroom presentation about mushrooms,  some show-and-tell, and a few hands-on learning activities. Cara shows  you the basics: mushroom characteristics of various typical families,  using key identifier species, and recognizing toxic lookalikes. Then  it’s on to culinary and medicinal uses and more.

After lunch, we head to a nearby trail to hunt for fungi! On the  trail, you will learn to use a variety of guidebooks to identify fungi  and their tree allies. We’ll collect specimens and practice spore printing along the way. By the end of the day, you’ll feel more confident about hunting  mushrooms on your own as you head home with plenty of reputable  resources to continue your learning.
