Start the day at the Shady Creek Outdoor School and Event Center. After a short introduction, you will head off with your group to explore the woods. There is no extra driving for this group!
The Shady Creek Center has approx. 120 acres of trails. There are mature forests of madrone, live oak, blue oak, manzanita, and pine. It is our lowest elevation site and represents a different ecosystem of foothill oak woodland and chaparral. There is a creek to explore. Edible varieties found in past: Honey Mushroom, Oyster Mushroom, Queen Boletus, Butter Boletus.
Bring a bagged lunch and be prepared to walk in the damp woods. Also useful: collection basket, waxed paper bags, knife, and hand lens. Please carpool if possible. This is a rain or shine event.
Following the collection foray, we will come together at the Conference Room for identification discussions, fungi related presentations, educational workshops, and there will be wild mushroom soups and other wild crafted and delicious food for sale.
