Join Maine’s most prominent mushroom expert for a day-long class devoted to building the skills needed to identify common mushrooms. The class will combine lecture and outdoor experience to look at identification features, ecology and the seasonal occurrence of mushrooms. We will look at edible as well as common poisonous mushrooms and enjoy cooking and eating some of the mushrooms we find. Bring lunch and come prepared for a hike. Feel free to bring mushroom samples.
