Event Description: 

It has been a wonderful year for fungi! In this presentation we will look at fungi that were notable and numerous in Connecticut and answer questions you may have about what mushrooms you saw this year (bring pictures on your cell phone). We may or may not go outside to search for mushrooms depending on weather and what there is to see. Laurie Gorham has been a wild foods forager since the age of 16. She began working with mushrooms ten years ago, first studying on her own, and then joining the Connecticut Valley Mycological Society in 2011. She has been eating, photographing, and growing mushrooms ever since. In addition to her fungal adventures, she is a participant in the 2017 Goodwin Master Naturalist Program.
