Foraging Fungi: Virtual Fungi ID

July 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Once you have an idea of the huge variety of edible mushrooms, it’s time to go in-depth to learn how to differentiate specific ID characteristics. By the end of our class, you’ll feel comfortable using a guidebook to identify mushrooms & how to properly utilize online forums. Our virtual class won’t disappoint as we’ve created slides with high-resolution photos of both dried and fresh specimens to compare and contrast at your own pace while a teacher talks you through differences such as gills & pores, partial & full veils, margins, & aromas. We’ll also send you an optional list of easily found items to use as a post-class exercise which will enhance the experience even further.

In this class you’ll:

Have access to a PowerPoint with high resolutions photos of ID features for several edible mushrooms that grow in our region

Go through a comprehensive list of ID features utilized by guide books

Get a list of supplementary sensory items to enhance the class experience
