Trout Lake Mushroom Forage (10/23) with Krista Cushman
Teacher: Krista Cushman
Availability: 12 open
We wait all season for our fall mushroom hunts in the Columbia Gorge, and they rarely disappoint! Fall is the ideal season for beginning foragers to learn the basic skills of mushroom ID, safety and forest ecology, while experienced foragers can delight in the new surprises the forest offers season after season. Join outdoor enthusiast and Gorge local, Krista Cushman on an exploration of the magic and mystery fall fungi have to offer. This class may find a range of edible mushrooms such as the golden chanterelle, white chanterelle, bear’s head, porcini, coral or lobsters! While we can never guarantee that students will leave with full baskets of edible mushrooms, we can promise you a day full of helpful information, ID tips and tricks, and fresh mountain air! Krista participated in WildCraft’s 2019 Mycology Teacher Training, guided by Rachel Zoller of Yellow Elanor.
This forage will be held near the town of Trout Lake, WA.
