Digital Program: Mushroom ID for Beginners
September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry? 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.
The 3 Foragers are a family from southeastern Connecticut and they have worked with over 150 libraries, nature centers, summer camps, garden clubs, land trusts, and private citizens to learn the wild edible plants and fungi of Southern New England since 2016. Their blog, Facebook page, and book all focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of wild plants and fungi, and ways to incorporate these foods into your diet with original recipes.
Registration is required to attend this program. You will receive a Zoom invitation the morning of the program.
