Join Chick of the Woods for a day of foraging fun in Richfield, MN. Foraging is not normally allowed in this park, but we will be allowed special permission to pick mushrooms for this event!
We will begin with hands-on learning, looking at samples of common, edible fall mushrooms. After our discussion, we will walk the trails (up to 1.5 miles of walking on flat trails) foraging for fungi while learning how to identify trees that are associated with fall mushrooms. This will be a beginner level class and no experience is necessary. It is not guaranteed we will find any mushrooms, but we will learn “how” to find and identify common fall mushrooms and the trees associated with those mushrooms. If we do find mushrooms, we will split any mushrooms we find with the group.
$59.00 per person. Event will happen rain or shine. In cases of severe weather or unforeseen circumstances, class will be cancelled and credit will be given for a future class.
