Late summer foraging is something that sparks inspiration and excitement for foragers all around the world. The wide variations of wild edible mushroom species you can find begin at this shift from summer into autumn. Various nut and fruit trees also start to ripen at this time, making the season exciting and keeping foragers alike curious! This will be a late summer foraging workshop for folks who consider themselves as beginners. This workshop takes place in a beautiful mixed forest of hardwoods and conifers, covering roughly 3 miles on foot. This workshop will cover what tools to bring with you out in the field, how to properly and safely identify specific species we find & how to harvest and then preserve or prepare the harvest. We’ll also discuss certain ecological roles that mushrooms play in the forest. NOTE: This workshop will involve hiking over various terrain and will be around 2-3 miles in total. There will be a waiver to fill out upon purchase of admission that’s required to join us.
