This will be an in-person beginner mushroom class PLUS a guided hike to put the learned skills to practice. The class covers the basics of mushroom foraging in the midwest. You will learn general mushroom information, edible mushrooms, toxic mushrooms, how to come to identifications, and how to confidently continue learning. The classroom portion will take about 2 and a half hours approximately. Then we will go off on one of the trails on-site on a guided foray and talk about the mushrooms we are finding and how to identify them. This foray portion of the class could take about 2-3 hours approximately. Suggested items to bring: Bottled water, please wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear, pen/pencil and paper to take notes, and a basket or mesh bag to collect mushrooms in(certainly not required though). This class should take roughly 5 hours total. Directions to the Boulder Lake ELC and additional notes will be emailed to you 3 days ahead of the class date. Please watch for that! Boulder Lake ELC is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Duluth, Minnesota. This class is non-refundable. Price is per person. No children under the age of 16 please.
