Mushroom Foray is a fall/winter day-adventure, each Saturday, in which we guide a group on mushroom hunting in Oregon’s southern coast range. Not only will show how to properly identify and collect both culinary wonders and medicinal species, but we will also give a lesson in mushroom biology that can be carried on in your future mushroom hunting and identification endeavors. The day will include a nature walk in a wilderness area where mushrooms are abound. As mushrooms are located by group members, we will discuss proper identification, biological traits, and harvesting information, as well as proper cleaning, processing, cooking, and preserving methods for each edible we find.
All the mushrooms you collect, you will be able to take home and enjoy. Depending on the time of year, and where we focus our day’s energy, we can collect a number of edible species including Chanterelles, Hedgehogs, various Boletes (including Porcini), Lobsters, Hawk’s Wings, Candy Caps, Yellowfoots, Turkey Tails, Oregon Reishis, Oysters, and more.
The Mushroom Foray will be lead by Micha and Dan of Myrtle Glen Farm, who are amateur mycologists, avid mushroom hunters and growers.
From October to December, we will lead the mushroom foray every Saturday from 10am to 1pm.
