Summer Mushroom ID Workshop

Presented by mycologist Jay Justice

Sunday, June 11, 9:30am-7:00pm

This new power point presentation and foraging fungi workshop will focus techniques used to identify wild mushrooms.

Our morning presentation will be followed by a lunch break (brown bag it or head over to Grandma’s Cafe for some down home Southern cooking), an afternoon foray in the Ozark National Forest to observe and collect mushrooms/fungi in their natural habitat. Then we’ll gather our finds, head back to Ozark Folkways for a hands on identification workshop followed by one of our ever popular soup to nuts mushroom centric feasts!
