One of the best ways to learn about wild mushrooms is to accompany an experienced mushroom person into the field. We will meet at the CCE’s Agroforestry Resource Center and walk across the road to the Siuslaw Model Forest for the foray. As we explore its mushroom-rich woods, Bob Beyfuss will talk about the mushrooms he recognize and discuss their edible, medicinal, and other usages. After the walk, we will sort and display the mushrooms on tables in a hands-on session, and learn some of the methods used in identifying them. Cost: $10. Registration deadline August 9th. To register call 518-622-9820 X 100.
