It's Fall, so our woods are full of wild mushrooms, hundreds of species. A few of them are choice edibles -- chanterelles, porcinis, cauliflowers, lobsters. But how do you find them, and how do you know for sure what you're collecting?

This class is an introduction to finding, identifying and safely consuming local wild mushrooms. It will start with a Wednesday evening discussion, "How To Look at A Mushroom," and continue with a Saturday foray in promising habitat less than two hours away. We are sure to find mushrooms, but there is no guarantee they will be edibles.


  • Open to ages 14+.
  • The materials fee covers a one-year membership in the Kitsap Peninsula Mycological Society, so you will be notified about club forays so you can  continue learning about the amazing diversity of local mushrooms.
  • The first session will be held in the small classroom at BARN.
  • Instructions for getting to the foray site will be given at the first meeting, and participants can arrange carpools then. Please do not bring dogs on the foray.
  • If the weather is unsuitable on the day scheduled for the foray, it will be held on  Saturday, Nov. 2, instead.
Instructor: David Ansley is a member of the Kitsap Peninsula Mycological Society who often leads group forays in western Washington forests. He also  manages the website, which includes a regional mushroom photo gallery and a recipe collection.
