Cape Cod's Nature Place

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History


Introduction to Mushrooming




Mushrooming can be a fun and safe hobby if you know the guidelines. Get a solid background on what you need to get started on your mushrooming journey with an interactive visual presentation, and then go out on the Museum trail to find some beginner and novice-level mushrooms! Wear good walking footwear, insect repellent, and bring a cloth or paper bag or basket for collection, and a pocket knife or shears.
