Foraging Fungi: Virtual Fungi ID

July 7, 2021 @ 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

Refund Policy

·   All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission. Full refunds (minus a 20% processing fee) will be given to any participant canceling at least 30 days prior to the scheduled class date. Due to the nature of full series commitments, no refunds will be processed once the series has started.

·   Enrollment cannot be transferred to another class. If you are within the 30-day cancellation period, it is best to request a refund and sign up for the desired replacement.

About LandBack Tax

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

 The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

Weather Policy

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
