"Wild Mushrooms 101
Join us for this rare opportunity
to learn from a 30 year veteran
of wild mushroom foraging! You

six’ mushrooms to harvest, including the
rules of wild foraging, and the ability to
identify common poisonous mushrooms.
Topics include biology, tree identification,
ethics, safety, storage and preparation.
Your instructor is a certified expert
by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture
