Edible & Medicinal Mushrooms of California:
Weekend Workshop and Field Exploration

Winter Session (Mendocino County)

As the days shorten and the autumn rains (hopefully) begin to fall, the coastal California landscape literally comes to life with a myriad of mysterious fungal forms. It is estimated that some 3000+ mushroom species abound within our state borders, so it is not surprising that many feel a bit overwhelmed and intimidated when approaching the field of mycology (study of fungi). Join us as we make sense of this vast and cryptic realm while exploring the diverse array of edible/medicinal mushrooms found at their prime during winter on the Northern California coast. This interdisciplinary program will engage students on all levels through a combination of classroom lecture, field exploration, and hands-on activities.

Topics/activities include: mushroom ecology, mushroom identification (in the classroom and in the field), edible/medicinal uses, legal/ethical harvesting guidelines, safety issues/mushroom toxicolgy plus tips on how to avoid hazardous look-alike species, plant communites of the CA coast, tree/shrub identification, coverage of recent taxonomic/nomenclature changes, sampling of a variety of edible/medicinal mushrooms and preparations, medicine making exercises, mushroom cookery/preservation, and more!

Date/Time: December 16-17. 10am-6pm.

Class Fee:

Pre-registration discount before Nov. 17 deadline: $160 (includes materials fee). After Nov. 17 deadline: $185
