Mushroom Identifying for Beginners

October 4, 2023 @ 5:30 pm

We will be heading to Massachusetts to present this program in the DeSantis Community Room at the Monson Free Library. There is no registration required.
Join The 3 Foragers as they share some of the secrets of the fungal world and teach you how to safely identify wild mushrooms using various available tools and techniques. You’ll learn how to use your senses to examine mushrooms for their sights, smells, and tastes, and consider the relationships between fungi and the natural world around us. We will dispel common myths, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms.
