Foraging with a Field Guide with El McFarland [OFFSITE]
August 12, 2023@10:00 am - 12:00 pm$45
Mushroom foraging is a popular pursuit in our area, but it can be difficult to search for wild edibles safely, especially without the know-how to identify your findings. In this pop-up foray, we will walk the lands of the Catoctin Watershed scouting for mushrooms with field guide, El McFarland. This class will require walking off the beaten path, please dress accordingly. If you have a mushroom ID book, we highly recommend you bring it!
*Though we hope to find edible mushrooms, there is no guarantee. Our intent is to help provide you with some working knowledge so that you can build a safe foraging practice for yourself.
*The date for this event is tentative depending on the best possible weather conditions for mushroom hunting. All attendees will be notified if this event will be held on this date or moved depending on recent rainfall.
