Early autumn is a good time for finding fungi, including such edibles as lobster mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, hen of the woods (maitake), black trumpets, and hedgehog mushrooms. Justin Garner will be our guide as we explore the woods in quest of mushrooms. Justin has a long-standing interest in these often neglected and misunderstood life forms, will teach about the nourishing, medicinal, and toxic properties of our diverse fungi.

With luck, we will find some of the tasty edibles. Bring a bag or basket for collecting mushrooms and a mushroom knife or small pocketknife. Be prepared for off-trail hiking in wooded terrain.
