Central Coast Mushroom Forage (oct 15) with Chrisha Favors
Teacher: Chrisha Favors
Availability: 1 open
Fall mushroom hunting season has arrived in the central coast region of Oregon! This time of the year is ideal for mushroom varieties like golden chanterelles, porcini, coral, white chanterelle, and lobster mushrooms. Join Chrisha Favors on a foraging journey through the moss-covered Pacific Northwest forest as she guides students through the forests, observing not just edible mushrooms, but the environment in which they grow and thrive. Chrisha will demonstrate important elements of the mushroom ID process, including discussion on toxic look-alikes and how to harvest, clean and process your edibles. Chrisha is a famer, forager and naturalist with a strong background in environmental science education. In addition to her self-taught knowledge, she has studied mycology with The Herbal Academy and Oregon Permaculture Works. This workshop will meet near the town of Yachats, OR.
