Fungus Among Us

Sunday, October 28, 10:00-12:00PM (Tentative)

Lake Padden (West) - park in the horse trailer lot

The Pacific Northwest is known for hosting a diverse bounty of incredible fungi. This class touches on the basics and offers some hands-on practice on how to identify the common fungus among us. Join our friends from the Northwest Mushroomers Association, Pam Borso and Dr. Fred Rhoades, for a morning of forest exploration and mushroom identification.

This outing is best for adults and children ages 4 and up. Wear your rain gear and bring a snack and a handled basket for collecting the fungus you find. Mystery yard mushrooms are welcome to attend and be identified.
