Foraging for wild mushrooms has become a favored pastime for nature-minded people of all ages. The single thing that holds a novice mycophile back is the fear of being poisoned. There are a number of toxic mushrooms that can make you sick and a small number, dangerously ill. This presentation will introduce you to the concept of “Foolproof Mushrooms”, a group of mushrooms that are common, easily identifiable and without toxic look-alikes. It will also address some of the common mistakes that people later regret. Join us for an evening of learning a handful of “Foolproof" edible mushrooms and some guidance to avoid becoming a toxic mushroom statistic.
