Mushroom Hunting

Thursday, November 21, 2019

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Come learn about our area's edible wild mushrooms of late autumn!

Massachusetts actually has many great seasons for edible mushrooms.  Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt will present a slideshow class featuring all-local mushroom photography on how you can learn to safely find and enjoy these wild fungi.  It will cover the basics of mushrooms science and safety, and show you the many diverse and delicious autumn species of our area, including several that are considered safe for beginners to use in cooking.  Come learn about this incredibly fun hobby!

About the presenters:
Ryan Bouchard and Emily Schmidt started The Mushroom Hunting Foundation to teach Americans how to safely enjoy our nation's spectacular wild mushrooms. Ryan’s new book Gourmet Mushrooms of the Northeast will be featured at this event.

This event is made possible by the Friends of the Jones Libraries.
