Edible & Medicinal Mushrooms of California:
Weekend Workshop and Field Exploration

Winter Session (Mendocino County)

As the days shorten and the autumn rains (hopefully) begin to fall, the coastal California landscape literally comes to life with a myriad of mysterious fungal forms. It is estimated that some 3000+ mushroom species abound within our state borders, so it is not surprising that many feel a bit overwhelmed and intimidated when approaching the field of mycology (study of fungi). Join us as we make sense of this vast and cryptic realm while exploring the diverse array of edible/medicinal mushrooms found at their prime during winter on the Northern California coast. This interdisciplinary program will engage students on all levels through a combination of classroom lecture, field exploration, and hands-on activities.

Topics/activities include: mushroom ecology, mushroom identification (in the classroom and in the field), edible/medicinal uses, legal/ethical harvesting guidelines, safety issues/mushroom toxicolgy plus tips on how to avoid hazardous look-alike species, plant communites of the CA coast, tree/shrub identification, coverage of recent taxonomic/nomenclature changes, sampling of a variety of edible/medicinal mushrooms and preparations, medicine making exercises, mushroom cookery/preservation, and more!

Date/Time: February 2-3 (2019). 10am-6pm.

Class Fee:

Pre-registration discount before January 3 deadline: $170 (includes materials fee). After January 3 deadline: $195

Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by January 24.

Frequently asked questions:

-How long/demanding will the field portion of the class be? Typically no more than 2-4 moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss mushrooms/plants.

-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).

-Is it OK to bring my child? My 16-hour adult-level workshops are in no way suitable for younger children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.

-I'm not a fan of winter-time camping...are there nearby off-site accommodations near Ukiah? Oh yes...plenty! Airbnbs and motels abound and some students do choose to go this route.

-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: «Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!». Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.

-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: «Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by January 24. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email).»
