Coastal Mushroom Forage (Sept 27) with Tiffany Garner
Teacher: Tiffany Garner
For the intrepid forager, fall is the most exciting time of year to hunt mushrooms. Chanterelles are a common find in the fall and hopefully we’ll come across a few! They like to stay hidden in the moss and duff but when you spot that bit of gold you’ll be hooked! Whether or not we stumble onto a honey-hole of Chanterelles, students can expect to learn about other native plants and trees to help you spot these tasty fall mushrooms. Students will also be guided through the steps of safe mushroom ID, using 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 workshop is open to all adults 16 yrs & over, who are prepared to hike all day (rain or shine) on uneven terrain, off-trail. This is not a suitable workshop for those with health conditions that may be triggered by hiking, carrying a backpack, or being outside for 5+ hours in variable weather conditions. Finding morels or other edible mushrooms is not guaranteed. A high level of education, however, is guaranteed! Please leave dogs at home. No previous experience necessary. A detailed packing list is included in the confirmation email, and info about our foraging location will be provided 1 week prior to the trip.
