Introduction to Mushroom ID & Mycology
This class will help people new to mushroom foraging identify wild mushrooms, but also contains abundant information to improve identification skills for more experienced mushroom hunters. Daniel will present mushrooms from many perspectives: morphology-how they look, how to identify them safely and the diverse resources available in the PNW (online, books, clubs etc.) to help you successfully forage. We will look in detail at a wide variety of mushrooms growing in the PNW with a bias toward edible fungi, highlighting characteristics important for safe identification. We will address questions like, what are they made of (incl. nutritional value), when, where and why they grow, or, in other words, what is their role in the ecosystem. Understanding mushrooms is very helpful for finding them! All this will be illustrated with Daniel's stunning mushroom photography.
