Coastal Mushroom Forage (Sept 25) with Tiffany Garner
Teacher: Tiffany Garner
For the intrepid forager, fall is the most exciting time of year to hunt mushrooms as the season frequently offers an abundance of varieties of fungi including chanterelles! There’s nothing quite like the feeling of spotting that bit of gold, hidden in the moss & duff. Whether or not we stumble onto edible mushrooms, students can expect to learn about conditions that support fungi as well as ID tips for native plants and trees that can help you spot tasty fall mushrooms. Students will be guided through the steps of safe mushroom ID, using WildCraft mushroom guide and other resources provided by our teacher. No experience required, just an excitement for adventure and learning! Tiffany participated in WildCraft’s 2019 Mycology Teacher Training, guided by Rachel Zoller of Yellow Elanor. This is an off-site workshop, meeting near the town of Tillamook, OR. An exact meeting location and further details will be emailed to students one week prior to the forage.
