October is typically the time of the year when we see the widest variety of mushrooms. As summer transitions to fall, rain and cool temperatures cause mushrooms to show up with increasing frequency. This class is an excellent introduction to mushroom foraging. It includes the basics of how mushrooms work, why they are critical to healthy ecosystems, where to find them, the basics of identification, and some common poisonous species.
