About The Event

With summer rains come a rich and diverse flush of wild mushrooms in our forests and fields. Mushrooms have grabbed the imagination and interest of all as we seek a closer relationship with nature and a better understanding of the ecology of our forests. Join a Maine mushroom expert for an exploration of fungal ecology, edibility, toxicity and, above all, the wonder of mushrooms.  Come prepared for a good walk in the woods, with an open mind and your curiosity. Feel free to bring in a couple of mushrooms to identify or to show off.

This event is free. To help keep these events accessible to all, we encourage a donation of $10 (or more!).

Greg Marley has been collecting, studying, eating, growing and teaching mushrooms for over 45 years. He is the

author of Mushrooms for Health: Medicinal Secrets of Northeastern Fungi and Chanterelle Dreams, Amanita

Nightmares: The Love Lore and Mystic of Mushrooms and consults on mushroom ID for Poison Centers.
