This past Sunday, Mr Chiots and I attending a mushroom identification class at the Hidden Valley Nature Center. We spent the morning inside, learning about mushroom identification features. The class was taught by Greg Marley who wrote the book Mushrooms for Health: Medicinal Secrets of Northeastern Fungi.
After class room time we went out into the woods to forage. We picked every mushroom we saw and identified them as either edible or not edible. It was a real hands on class about mushrooms, which we really liked.
Overall it was a great day and we learned a lot. Mr Chiots and I love mushrooms and are looking forward to finding more wild ones on our property. When it comes to mushroom hunting, a little direction from a professional will certainly give you the peace of mind you need!
