Mushrooming: Beyond the Basics



Let's go a little further and learn about some medicinal mushrooms, and more about mushroom features and methods of identification. Our talk, with visuals, will cover additional types of mushrooms to take you further on your mushrooming journey. Afterwards, we will go out on the Museum trail to find some wild mushrooms! Wear good walking footwear, insect repellant, and bring a cloth or paper bag or basket for collection, and a pocket knife or shears.
