Thousands of species of mushrooms lurk in the woods and grasses of Colorado. This event will cover basic mushroom biology, common Colorado mushrooms, how mushrooms make their living, poisonous mushrooms, and how to recognize major mushroom families.
You’ll also learn how to make the beautiful spore prints that can be vital to identification. In the field, you’ll get hands-on experience collecting and identifying mushrooms, learn how not to get lost while on forays, and be trained in the art of the mushroom hoot.
