SOLD OUT: Wild Mushroom Identification Class & Outing

Join Chris Swinson of Mycophile’s Garden for an afternoon identifying some of the 1,000 species of mushrooms that grow in Michigan. We’ll begin with a 1-hour lecture covering the basic terms, types, habitats, and physical characteristics of our local fungi. Heading outside, we’ll spend 1.5 hours utilizing our newly acquired knowledge to search for and identify mushrooms and the characteristics needed to accurately describe, discuss, and identify them.  Throughout the class, we’ll discuss the importance of using scientific names when studying or discussing fungi, as well as how to identify toxic fungi, how to best prepare and consume wild mushrooms, and more
