After meeting at the Oak Tree School, our traditional Saturday morning wild mushroom hunt will continue to several sites in the local forest. Afterwards, attendees will return to the Oak Tree School for an afternoon of identification and mushroom-related presentations. Be prepared to walk in the damp woods and off trail for an optimum mushroom hunting experience. Useful items to bring include: collection basket, waxed paper bags, knife, camera, notebook, field identification guide, and hand lens. This is a rain or shine event. We support carpooling to reduce our impact at this event.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3, 10 AM – 4 PM
On Sunday we host the Wild Mushroom Exposition once again. The Exposition will be filled with our collections of seasonal Sierra mushrooms labelled and organized from the week’s collections. Lectures start Sunday with the presentation and cooking demonstration of “Eat Like a King”, by Chef Todd Spanier. Afternoon presentations will include “Microscopy Crash Course” by Alan Rockefeller, and local mycologist Daniel Nicholson will present “Collecting Sierran Mushrooms Year ‘Round”.
See you at the Foray! Happy mushroom hunting!
