Join us to learn about the amazing world of mycology that holds the ancient forest together. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll hunt for mushrooms, identify common species, taste edible mushrooms, and learn about the role of fungi in the ancient forest environment. The second day of the workshop will be spent foraging and learning to dye cloth with mushrooms. Please bring a piece of wool or silk clothing to dye, or a few dollars to purchase silk on-site. This workshop is very popular and fills quickly!
Instructor John Villella is a professional ecologist and former Opal Creek staff instructor.
