Join mushroom expert, Dr. Jason Hoeksema from the University of Mississippi, for some fun with fungi. Dr. Hoeksema will describe the basics of safely foraging for wild mushrooms, lead a short mushroom foray, and discuss how to identify common species of wild edible and non-edible mushrooms. If you've seen a lot of mushrooms pop-up following the recent rains, bring them along! Simply refrigerate in a paperbag until the day of the program. Participants are also encouraged to bring a basket or paper/canvas bags for collecting.
Spaces are limited, contact Andrea Schuhmann via email email@example.com or phone (662) 252-1155 to reserve your spot.
