Mushroom ID for Beginners

Monday, July 16th, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Collins Room
Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry?

Join a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and eat the fungi in New England. They will dispel common myths, teach you how to safely identify mushrooms with visual clues and guidebooks, and discuss mycophagy (the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms). The 3 Foragers are from southeastern Connecticut and are members of the Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, as well as avid food foragers.
