This introductory class to mushroom identification covers most of the terms and features used in mushroom guide books to identify mushrooms. Through a large variety of images and graphics, you will become familiar with how to identify mushrooms to genus. Take a tour of the common genera we find in our area, learn how to identify some common edible mushrooms and their look-alikes, and find out recommended guidebooks for learning more. An indoor presentation will be followed by a walk on the sanctuary to look for and identify edible mushrooms.
