From Boulder High Country Mushrooms:
Head into the Rockies with wild mushroom enthusiast Michael Heim this Sunday (8/24) for a mushroom foray and a walk in the woods. You’ll gain a firm handle on the foundations of mushroom identification as you locate a variety of medicinal and edible fungi growing in the wild. You’ll have a chance to discuss mushroom anatomy and learn the tools for contrasting mushrooms that may be poisonous with those that may inspire a dinner party. You’ll return with a better understanding of what it means to hunt for mushrooms – and hopefully some fungi to take home.
Please note, mother nature is a wild beast and we cannot guarantee the number or variety of the mushrooms we will find. Bring your positive attitude and your hiking apparel (i.e. long pants, hat, good footwear), as well as water/snacks and an awareness that we will be walking at elevation. All participants should come prepared for weather in the high country. Capacity is strictly limited and registration required. We will be meeting at the Nederland Visitor Center promptly at 9 am in order to figure out driving logistics and to have a brief discussion on what to expect for the day.
