Mushroom Hunting for Beginners: The Fool-Proof Four & More
June 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for a peek into the world of common edible wild mushrooms. The fool-proof, or infallible four refer to four of the over 50 wild mushrooms that are easy to identify, abundant and what we call “choice” edibles, meaning delicious. In this presentation by Hunter Le Duc of the Illinois Mycological Association, we will learn to recognize these four mushrooms and a handful more that can be found easily, locally, and turned into succulent and nutritious meals.
Wild Mushrooms are something our presenter Hunter Le Duc has been interested in since her first foray as a little girl. She was always fascinated by how unusual and diverse the mushrooms were that her father, one of the founding members of the Illinois Mycological Association, would bring home and present to her mother to cook. In addition to being a member of a handful of Mycological Societies Hunter is certified as a Wild Mushroom Expert by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Free and open to the public. Please note the earlier start time of 6:00pm.
