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.
