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 edible.
