Hosted by REI, join Bruce Newhouse and Peg Boulay at Wildcraft Cider Works and dive in to the fantastic world of fungi at your feet! You may never walk in the woods the same after learning about all the amazing kinds of mushrooms that grow in our mountain forests. Many of them are good edibles - if you first learn the basics. We will cover a bit of fungal ecology - so that you will know where to look. Then, we'll talk about the most yummy and findable edibles in our area - so that you will know what to look for! Lastly, we'll go over our favorite ways of preparing them - so that you will know what to do with them if you bring back a basket full. We also will bring in some real specimens as well as our favorite books. Don't forget to register, seats are limited. $1 from every cider will be donated to Cascade Mycological Society. Make sure you show up by 6:30 to get your seats and ciders early so you don't miss any of the show!
