*UPDATE: Since we’ve had many people express an interest in attending the Mushroom Foraging Workshop but told us they can’t attend all three sessions, we have opened the Workshop for people who would like to attend just one or two. You can now choose to attend one or two of the workshops, for $35 each, or attend all three for $100. Register on-line and be sure to note in the comments box the workshops you will be attending.*
Do you want to learn about mushrooms?
Please sign up for this series of guided Mushroom Forays. They will be on:
- Saturday, July 19th
- Tuesday, August 26th
- Sunday, September 14th
This is your chance to enter the endlessly intriguing world of mushroom foraging. Join us for three 2-hour guided forays during the Champlain Valley’s summer mushroom season to learn about the distinctive and delicious species fruiting locally.
The first workshop begins with a brief introduction to foraging techniques, sustainable harvesting, and the “Mushroom Forager’s Forage-Cast” approach. Then we will go on a foray while hiking the one-mile Black Kettle Nature Trail loop.
Mushrooms change during the growing season and after rainy weather so we will return for second and third forays to discover and discuss the many different varieties of mushrooms.
To participate, we request a $100 donation per adult to register for the full series of hikes. While participation in all three forays is encouraged, individual sessions are transferable if you are unable to attend. Refunds are not available.
The workshops will begin promptly at 9:30 AM at the Black Kettle Nature Trailhead on Cook Road in Essex. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in.
Preregistration is required. Class size is limited to 20 participants, so please register early as the classes fill up fast! Register online here.
