What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry? Join the 3 foragers, a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and love to eat the fungi in New England, for a discussion and walk. We’ll dispel common myths, learn how to safely identify mushrooms with visual clues and guidebooks, and discuss the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms.
