Join mushroom enthusiast Carson Gross for a mushroom walk and talk in the St. Croix Valley. Class will start with an overview of the basics of mushroom foraging and identification as well as discussion of how to forage ethically and mindfully. The class will then meet at a nearby location for a mycological walk in the woods. No guarantees on the mushrooms you might find, which is part of the beauty of foraging. After the walk, class will regroup to share their harvest and identify some of what you’ve found.
Students are asked to bring:
- comfortable clothes for walking in the woods
- sturdy shoes
- a basket/mesh bag for mushroom collection
- bug spray if needed
- water, snacks, and/or bag lunch
No experience required.
Students ages 10 and older are welcome to attend this class. Ages 10-16 must register with another registered adult. Ages 17-18 can register with parent permission (by an email to email@example.com).
