Your last chance this year to learn what it takes to be a fungi awaits! We will be hunting for many mushrooms including hen of the wood, medicinal polypores, puffballs, corals, blewits, and so much more. As always, discussion will focus on safety, range, environmental factors, potential toxicity, and culinary applications. 

Please wear comfortable shoes for hiking the woods and sloping terrain. Bring a water bottle, insect repellent, and a bag for collecting your finds. Space is limited; pre-registration is required.

*Meet in the parking lot at Merck Forest and Farmland Center in Rupert
