About the Event

Indoor slideshow and lecture class with The Mushroom Hunting Foundation

There are many types of mushrooms in our region.  Some are poisonous, but their ecology is interesting...while others are simply delicious!  Learn about them from Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt, New England's leading mushroom hunting teachers.  Using a slideshow of their own incredible all-local photography, Ryan and Emily will explain the basics of wild mushroom science and safety, and focus on the local autumn species that are considered "safe for beginners" to cook with.  This class will show you inside a whole world of adventure that most people overlook.

Join us afterwards for an outdoor guided walk; please register for the walk here.
