This wet summer has led to a proliferation of fungi, and we had so much fun on our August foray that we decided to do it again! Justin Garner will be our guide as we explore the woods in quest of mushrooms. We hope to find, among the weird and wonderful variety, such edibles as lobster mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, hen of the woods (maitake), black trumpets, and hedgehog mushrooms.

Justin has a long-standing interest in these often neglected and misunderstood life forms, and has pursued education in botany, plant chemistry, and for good measure human physiology and biochemistry, and is thus prepared to teach about the nourishing, medicinal, and toxic properties of our diverse fungi.

Bring a bag or basket for collecting mushrooms and a mushroom knife or small pocketknife. Be prepared for off-trail hiking in wooded terrain.
