Learn the basics of foraging which is a fun activity for the entire family. This lecture is perfect for beginning foragers.
Fungus has symbiotic relationships with various trees. You will also learn which type of tree you might hope to find a particular type of mushroom, when the first mushrooms appear and what time of the year various edibles appear. If the first edible mushrooms have appeared in time for this presentation a tasting will be provided. Recipes for some of the most common edibles will also be shared.
