Mushroom ID and Foraging Workshop

Mushroom ID and Foraging Workshop

On Sunday, August 6th, Downeast Lakes Land Trust is pleased to welcome back Greg Marley for a “Mushroom ID and Foraging Workshop.”  This class will help beginners identify common mushrooms, including well-known edibles, poisonous species, and useful medicinal varieties. Mr. Marley will give beginners a workshop in identification, fungus ecology, collection, preparation, and recognizing mushroom habitat.  This is largely an outdoor program. Participants should wear weather-appropriate clothing, and bring a bagged lunch.  The cost is free, but pre-registration is encouraged.  Meet at the Grand Lake Stream School Building at 9 am. For more information or to register, please contact DLLT at (207) 796 – 2100, or email cbrown@downeastlakes.org.
