Although DNA testing is the only way to tell with absolute certainty what mushroom you have found, this class will cover the basics of mushroom identification and collection. Learn the basic characteristics of fungi including cap, gill and stipe features along with how to make a spore print and what to carry with you in the field. Where, when, and how to collect in a sustainable way will also be covered. A portion of the class will be spent outdoors so dress accordingly and bring a basket and pocket knife.
