Fungi Families & Mini-Hunt with Forage Culture
April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is a great starting point for folks who need a basic understanding of the differences between plant & fungi kingdom, but who don’t want to be overwhelmed with too much terminology! If you’ve only ever seen white button or portobello mushrooms up close, you’ll enjoy this easy-to-understand overview of how mushrooms can be grouped complete with interactive portions designed to provide multiple levels of learning!
In this virtual event, you’ll learn about:
-The vital differences between fungi & plant kingdoms
-The”Foolproof Four” edible wild mushrooms, and why they’re not exactly foolproof
-How to identify popular mushrooms in season right now (like morels and oyster mushrooms)
Plus, we’ll take you on a virtual hunt so that you can better understand the locations, surroundings, and environment necessary for those particular mushrooms to exist. No experience required for this fun and engaging class!
