Forest Mushroom Workshop

During this workshop you will learn about different types of mushrooms growing in the forests of Michigan.  Specific topics will include identification of wild mushrooms (edible and non-edible species) and the basic biology of mushrooms.  We will also discuss the ecological importance of such mushrooms in the forest.  An indoor presentation will be given by Linda Scribner, a naturalist who received her Wild Mushroom Certification through Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD).  The indoor presentation will be followed by a nature walk, where you will observe mushrooms and other forest-dwelling organisms! This workshop will take place in rain or shine so please dress for the weather and other environmental conditions!  We have applied to receive Phase 1 Education credit through the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) for this event.

There is no cost to attend the workshop, and lunch will be provided, but a suggested donation of $10.00 to help cover the cost of food and the speaker fee is much appreciated!  Please register before September 15th by contacting the Manistee Conservation District at 231-889-9666 or email Josh Shields, the Manistee Conservation District Forester, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
